Recent research has studied the properties of a macroscopic fundamental diagram (MFD) for urban areas. The MFD should not be universally expected as high scatter or hysteresis might appear for some type of networks. We investigate if aggregated relationships can describe the performance of urban bi-modal networks with buses and cars sharing the same infrastructure and identify how this performance is influenced by the interactions between modes and the effect of bus stops. We also introduce simple perimeter control strategies to maximize passenger flows.
