The Danish Road Directorate sponsored a study to develop methods for objectively quantifying pedestrian and bicyclist stated satisfaction with road sections between intersections. The results provide a measure of how well urban and rural roads accommodate pedestrian and bicycle travel. To determine how existing traffic operations, geometric conditions, and other variables affect pedestrians' and bicyclists' satisfaction, 407 randomly selected Danes were shown video clips from 56 roadway…

QUALITY OF BICYCLE TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT AT URBAN ROAD LINKS AND SIGNALIZED INTERSECTIONS UNDER MIXED TRAFFIC CONDITIONS

It was observed that traffic volume and crossing pedestrians have the highest influences on BLOSs of urban road links and signalized intersections respectively.

This study proposes bicycle level of service (BLOS) models for the urban road links and signalized intersection approaches operating under heterogeneous traffic flow conditions prevailing in

Urban road segment level of service based on bicycle users’ perception under mixed traffic conditions

During the past two decades, several methodologies are endorsed to assess the compatibility of roadways for bicycle use under homogeneous traffic conditions. However, these methodologies cannot be

Car Drivers’ Experienced Level of Service on Freeways

The Danish Road Directorate sponsored a study to develop methods for quantifying car drivers’ experienced level of service on freeways. The results provide a measure of how well freeways accommodate

Level of Service for Bicycle Through Movement at Signalized Intersections Operating Under Heterogeneous Traffic Flow Conditions

This study has taken an attempt to model the quality of services offered to bicycle through movement at urban signalized intersections carrying heterogeneous traffic. An extensive set of quantitative

Defining Bicycle Levels of Service Criteria Using Levenberg–Marquardt and Self-organizing Map Algorithms

It was observed that most of the studied segments are offering average to worst kind of services at their present-day conditions, and the influencing variables should be largely prioritized in the planning process to achieve better service levels efficiently.

The development of a rural bicycle compatibility index (RBCI) is described. A recent FHWA research project developed a Bicycle Compatibility Index (BCI). This index was developed for urban and

Intersection Level of Service for the Bicycle Through Movement

The study reveals that roadway traffic volume, total width of the outside through lane, and the intersection (cross street) crossing distance are primary factors in the Intersection LOS for the bicycle through movement.
