Abstract (300 words maximum)

As a response to surfacing transportation issues, the State of Georgia proposed Connect Cobb Corridor project in 2015 to improve the existing transit system. Connect Cobb Corridor project ranges from Kennesaw State University, Kennesaw, to MARTA Arts Center station. Introducing bus rapid transit (BRT) in Metro-Atlanta region is one of the key features of the project. Although the BRTs have many benefits over traditional bus systems, to further increase the efficiency, a new concept vehicle is introduced. Slim Modular Flexible Electric Bus Rapid Transit (SMFe-BRT) is a new concept vehicle with innovative components.

With the new concept vehicle, the network performance will be evaluated. The objectives for this project are to evaluate different alternatives of the proposed Cobb Corridor project by using analytical hierarchy process method, and to incorporate traffic flow analysis software Vissim to create evaluation criteria.
