City urban intersections often become problematic during the morning and evening rush hours. Traffic jams and sometimes accidents ensue.
Most users have expressed a reluctance to use complex intersections combining various lanes (cars, cyclist, pedestrian, LRT, BRT…) This is especially true for non-locals who are not at all familiar with them.
Flowell makes public transport travel easier by reinforcing priorities at complex hubs.
The objective of this use case was to both assess how Flowell can help users to better understand traffic flows and to comply with traffic priorities at such complex intersections.
Flowell’s impact was assessed using several criteria that demonstrated multiple user benefits such as:
- Better compliance with signage and public transport priority
- Making the intersection easier for drivers to understand.
- Lower incident rate
- Fewer obstructions for public transport leading to improved service speed and customer service
- Lower bus driver stress levels.
