This report discusses the results of a preliminary implementation study to determine the potential impacts of a new and innovative transit priority treatment along a BRT corridor in Eugene, Oregon. The bus lane with intermittent priority (BLIMP) utilizes dynamic lane assignment to designate an exclusive bus lane on a temporary, bus-actuated basis. The temporary lane is designated via overhead variable message signs and in-ground dynamic lane markings.
