NEW SYSTEMS REQUIREMENTS ANALYSIS PROGRAM, TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM EVALUATION INDICATORS

THE INTENT OF THIS STUDY WAS TO DEVELOP A SET OF TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM EVALUATION INDICATORS FOR USE IN THE MULTI-MODAL TRANSPORTATION PLANNING PROCESS. SINCE THE PLANNING PROCESS REFLECTS A GREAT VARIETY OF OBJECTIVES, AND SINCE MANY OF THESE OBJECTIVES ARE OFTEN IN CONFLICT, THERE MUST BE AN EVALUATION COMPONENT WHICH ENCOMPASSES TRADING OFF ATTAINMENT OF THESE OBJECTIVES, ONE AGAINST THE OTHER. THE REPORT DOES NOT DEAL WITH THE PROCESS PER SE, THAT IS WITH THE MECHANICS OF EVALUATION, BUT RATHER WITH THE IDENTIFICATION OF CERTAIN CRITERIA PUT INTO THE PLANNING PROCESS, ON THE MANY AND VARIED OBJECTIVES PERTINENT TO THE DEVELOPMENT AND OPERATION OF TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS, AND ON THE AVAILABLE METHODS FOR ASSESSING ACHIEVEMENT OF THESE OBJECTIVES. A BIBLIOGRAPHY IS INCLUDED.
