A theoretical model is presented to quantitatively address the relation between bus detector location and effectiveness of transit signal priority (TSP) systems, supplemented by a sample model application and simulation experiments on a real-world arterial corridor. The simulation results agree very well with results from the theoretical model. The findings of this research contribute to a better understanding of the interaction of the various components of TSP systems, which can lead to better TSP design and implementation.
