WMATA Bus Data Analysis

KAI is part of a team that provides on-call transit and transportation planning and engineering services to WMATA, including:

The K Street Busway: KAI evaluated the impact and configuration of implementing a new median busway along K Street through downtown Washington, D.C., connecting Union Station with Georgetown. The project included a VISSIM simulation model of the K Street corridor to assess operational impacts, a 3-D visualization, and a feasibility assessment of bus signal priority along the corridor.

The Regional Bus Study: This project involved a comprehensive assessment of bus service needs in the WMATA service area (covering Washington, D.C., suburban Maryland, and northern Virginia). It identified specific running-way improvements in certain corridors, including bus signal priority and other strategies.

The Bi-County Transitway Corridor: KAI led a feasibility study evaluating the potential for enhanced bus service between Bethesda and College Park. The firm conducted a rider survey to determine usage of and attitudes towards existing service; coordinated the development of a unique image for the service; and evaluated intersections for bus priority running-way treatments such as queue jumps and signal priority.
