Abstract: The Canadian government identified the reliability of public urban transit systems and the improvement of customer services as a priority. Therefore, in 1997, Transport Canada and the Regional Municipality of Ottawa-Carleton have set up a project called the "Bus Priority System Project" to enhance the capabilities of the existing OPSSIM simulation model in order to satisfy these requirements. The enhancement of the simulation model would allow for the training of controllers, as well as for the evaluation of new control strategies. This thesis describes a part of the project. It works on the design, research, investigation and implementation of a Central Control Action Module, and on the design and implementation of a user-friendly Run Time Bus Progress Screen. A brief user guide describing how to use these new features is also included in the thesis for the benefit of potential users. In the conclusion, overviews for future research are identified.
