Traffic simulation models have become an increasingly important tool for investigating vehicular dynamics in arterial networks. In this thesis, we study three distinct, but related, topics in the field of traffic simulation. Specifically, we study calibration of traffic models via Approximate Bayesian Computation (ABC); the form of link travel time distributions, particularly in the presence of traffic lights; and the form of dwell time distributions for on-road public transport, in particular, for trams.
