The achievements and plans of one such collaborative project PROMPT - in which priority and informatic systems are being developed and tested in London, Turin and Gothenburg are described. The emphasis in all three cities is the application of individual bus/tram priority at traffic signals within traffic responsive urban traffic control (UTC) systems.
