We're working with WYCA to improve reliability with traffic light priority
4 months ago
In partnership with West Yorkshire Combined Authority, we are trialling a new traffic light priority system to help speed up journeys.
Our ticket machines have been hooked up with new technology that allows them to communicate with the traffic light control centre and let them know info on whether a bus is early, on time or late to provide priority at appropriate times.
The bus will only be prioritised if this doesn't cause any other issues to the surrounding road network.
This means that whilst the bus won't always trigger the lights to turn to green, it will result in overall journey times being improved.
The upgraded bus junctions will be used at points between Leeds and Kirkstall on Aireline
