A bimodal urban network consists of the public transport mode and the car mode. Denote the modes with ξ ∈ b, c, where b is the public transport mode and c is the car mode. The vehicle accumulation within the network is n = (n b, n c) T, where n ξ is the accumulation of the respective mode. We assume the network is homogeneous, i.e. both public transport vehicles and cars are generally   Indra implemented the Hermes solution, a complete, centralized urban traffic management system, as the mobility solution for Metro Manila.

Thus, the monorail system in Japan is an effective solution to environmental problems and traffic congestion in urban cities, which also stimulates local economy.

Effective urban transport systems are essential to economic activity and quality of life. Urban transportation opens up opportunities to access essential services as well as social activities They mention traffic signal synchronization following criteria in the design of local street systems: • Safety- for both vehicular and pedestrian traffic. • Efficiency of Service- for all users. • Livability or Amenities- especially as affected by traffic elements in the circulation system. • Economy- of land use, construction, and maintenance

As for objective functions, the majority of adaptive traffic signal control schemes update signal timings to minimize total vehicular delays. Representatives of such signal-control systems are OPAC (Gartner, ), RHODES (Mirchandani and Head, ), SCAT (Sims and Dobinson, ) and SCOOT (Hunt et Real-Time Strategies for Intelligent Traffic Signal Networks (), Sponsored Research - Federal Highway Administration, USDOT University Transportation Centers Program @ MIT Gartner, N.
