In this paper, we propose a novel mathematical framework to formulate a unified Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) with Transit Signal Priority (TSP) system for single destination networks, namely, Bus Priority System Optimal Dynamic Traffic Assignment with Signal Control (BP SODTA-SC). This framework considers dedicated bus lanes, bus routes, and priority for public bus transport in mixed bus-car scenarios. Furthermore, this approach assures fairness to all road users. It is linearand can be applied to analyze city-size BRT-TSP systems. Our numerical results show that bus priority significantly reduces Total System-wide Passenger Travel Time (TSPT).
