Below is the uncorrected machine-read text of this chapter, intended to provide our own search engines and external engines with highly rich, chapter-representative searchable text of each book. A TRID search was conducted using various keywords to aid the literature review. Reports are grouped into two categories: the big picture and bus stop location and design.

The maturing of autonomous driving technology in recent years has led to several pilot projects and the initial integration of autonomous pods and buses into the public transport PT system. An emerging field of interest is the design of public transport networks operating autonomous buses and the potential to attract higher levels of travel demand. In this work a multi-objective optimization and multi-agent simulation framework is developed to study potential changes in the network design and frequency settings compared to conventional PT systems when autonomous vehicles AV systems are deployed on fixed-route networks. During the optimization process multiple deployment scenarios network configurations and service frequency are evaluated and optimized considering the operator cost, user cost and infrastructure preparation costs of the system. User-focused network design and operator-focused network design are studied for a real-world urban area in Sweden. The results provide insights into the network design and level of service implications brought about by the deployment of autonomous bus AB when those are integrated in route-based PT systems.

With US cities growing faster and faster, the construction of new buildings and structures seems to be never-ending, including those structures in the public transit sector. And with new bus stops, new bus shelters are also needed. However, with the bus stops being located on the side of city streets, any type of prolonged construction could cause massive traffic jams. So, looking for an alternative to stick-built, cities are trying to find new ways to quickly install new bus shelters without the city going into a gridlock. In order to minimize the amount of time working on the street, Panel Built prefabricates the structure in their manufacturing facility.
