Car lane-changing behaviour has been well investigated at merging locations or weaving sections where the lane-changes are usually due to different origin-destination trip purposes. However, the lane-changing behaviour under the effects of bus priority-lanes in urban streets has not been received much attention. This kind of behaviour is found to initially depend on the existence of oncoming buses in priority-lanes in urban streets. In this paper, a car lane-changing model under bus priority-lane effects in urban streets is proposed. This model comprises three steps: looking-back threshold determination, gap acceptance model and execution model. The model’s parameters are estimated jointly by using the Maximum Likelihood Method. The research results show that the car lane-changing behaviour under bus-priority-lane effects in urban streets is considered compulsory behaviour. The behaviour has specific characteristics with smaller critical gaps compared with those at other normal lane cases and can be modelled by the proposed model.
