CITE has updated this valuable technical resource, widely regarded as fundamental to the understanding of transportation operations related to signalized intersections. The new Guide has been endorsed by the Transportation Association of Canada (TAC) as a national reference on the topic. The Guide will be supported through a joint committee between CITE and TAC.

The Guide includes a comprehensive methodology for analyzing and designing signal phasing and timing for intersections, saturation flow data from across Canada, discussion on transit priority operations, designing for safety, and other relevant topics. Four worked examples are included.

This project has also involved the development of the InterCalc software, which replicates the Guide’s methodology.

Training on the Guide and the InterCalc software is available, via a one-day workshop. Contact Jim Gough ( or Glen Holland (
