Dispersion Effect in Left-Turning Bicycle Traffic and Its Influence on Capacity of Vehicles

The primary objective of this study was to investigate the dispersion effect in left-turning bicycle traffic at signalised intersections and to evaluate the effect's influence on the capacity of left-turning vehicles.

Measuring Traffic Reduction from Bicycle Commuting

This study sought to measure the reduction in motor vehicle traffic when more people ride bicycles.  Ride to Work day was used to study this relationship as it is known that the volume of bicycle traffic doubles on this day.

The role of attitudes, socio-demographics, and the built environment in bicycle commuting

This research disaggregates different commute-cyclist populations and tests how attitudes, socio-demographics, and the built environment impact their commute mode choice.

Simulation study of bicycle multi-phase crossing at intersections

The objective of this research was to study the potential impact of applying multi-phase crossings for left-turning bicycles on the efficiencies of signalised intersections by means of microscopic simulation.

Evaluating the Impacts of On-street Vehicle Parking on Bicycle Operation and Vehicle Delay

The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the impacts of on-street parking on bicycle operation and vehicle delay on urban streets.

An Analysis of Bicycle Travel Speed and Disturbances on Off-street and On-street Facilities

This study focuses on quantifying the role of disturbances encountered on separated cycling facilities, compared to disturbances from cycling mixed with traffic, assuming cyclists speed as a performance measure and analysing the cyclist speed reductions from different types of disturbances.
