Several issues--(a) assembly of aggregated impacts of areawide TSM action for use by local elected officials, (b) evaluation of possible TSM strategies against major capital alternatives, (c) relationship between long- and short-range planning for TSM, and (d) incorporation of TSM actions in the urban transportation planning process--can be at least partially resolved through simplifications inherent in TSM. On the other hand, development of a truly integrated multimodal TSM process is not likely to occur until a pressing need appears that justifies the additional complexity involved. (Author)
