The construction of a transportation system management evaluation framework that can be easily integrated into the current urban transportation planning process and that can be adapted to previously established institutional arrangements within medium-sized metropolitan areas is discussed. The scope of this project was two-fold. On the one hand the study involved the development of a general evaluation framework that could be adapted to specific metropolitan areas. On the other hand, the project encompassed the testing of a framework that could be adapted to specific metropolitan areas. For this testing, the evaluation framework was partially applied within one case-study area: the Omaha-Council Bluffs metropolitan area, which encompasses portions of Nebraska and Iowa. Based on the general investigation and the specific case study, a program was then developed to implement the evaluation framework within a metropolitan planning organization. (Author)
