How are bus lines and stops modelled? Are bus detection, signals and priority measures modelled?

Public transport is modelled as trams and/or buses in high detail with fixed routes. Stops and timetables are modelled as well. Waiting times at stops depend on the timetable and on a user-defined random distribution for the passenger interchange times. Optionally the dwell time calculation method can be chosen which uses real passenger flows to determine waiting times. Priority on signal control junctions can be modelled completely with detection and control logic using a vehicle actuated signal controller.
