    Enabling cooperation between vehicles form vehicular networks, which provide safety, traffic efficiency and infotainment. The most vital of these applications require reliability and low latency. Considering these requirements, this paper presents a multitier heterogeneous adaptive vehicular (MHAV) network. Comprising of transport operator or authority owned vehicles in high tier and all the other privately owned vehicles in low tier, integrating cellular network with dedicated short range communications. The proposed framework is implemented and evaluated in Glasgow city center model. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed architecture outperforms previous multitier architectures in terms of latency while offloading traffic from cellular networks.
