Results of the Workshop - An Areawide Planning Context for TSM

The conference was structured to address three major issues in TSM planning and implementation--the identification of organizational roles in TSM planning, programming, and implementation, including the roles of the private sector and the professional disciplines; an understanding of why certain high-achievement TSM actions have been neglected; and the relationship of TSM to major national goals and to the comprehensive transportation planning process in metropolitan areas. Each of these issues was assigned to a workshop where the participants discussed, debated, and produced a position paper presenting specific recommendations. Because these issues could not be addressed independently of each other, the workshop chairpersons presented the latest findings of the workshops in conference plenary sessions so that every participant was aware of the direction that each group was taking. These plenary sessions proved most useful in finding and establishing the themes that were common in all workshop discussions and in high-lighting those areas where substantive agreement on underlying issues could not be obtained. The organization of this report reflects the structure of the conference. The papers presented at the opening session, which provided background information on TSM, established a common point of departure for the workshop discussions, and identified topics in TSM that merit further attention, are found in the first section of this report. The next three sections are devoted to the activities of the three workshops each includes the resource papers prepared by the workshop participants and a workshop summary. The conference summary presents the major conclusions and recommendations of each workshop (although the workshop summaries will provide the interested reader with a better sense of how these conclusions were reached).
