Transportation Systems Management (TSM) denotes a process designed to increase the efficiency of existing transportation facilities and resources by implementing low-capital measures which reduce the need for major capital improvements. In addition to fiscal economy, the TSM process insures that meaningful steps can be taken toward attaining broader local and national goals--energy conservation, environmental improvements, equity for transit dependents and urban preservation. In this fifth update of the TSM Element, greater emphasis is placed on: (1) developing a method for prioritizing projects; (2) developing monitoring and evaluation techniques to ascertain the effectiveness of implemented projects; (3) establishing a transportation technical committee to more completely involve local and state agencies in the total TSM program.
