TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM MANAGEMENT: HANDBOOK OF MANUAL ANALYSIS TECHNIQUES FOR TRANSIT STRATEGIES (DALLAS-FORT WORTH)

Transportation System Management (TSM) is a philosophy about planning, designing, implementing and operating transportation system improvements in a way which attempts to make best use of existing resources that addresses movement of people and goods and that attempts to manage both transportation supply and demand. As a part of the study conducted in Dallas-Ft. Worth, North Central Texas Council of Governments undertook to develop a set of planning manuals that could be used in the ongoing process of developing strategies to improve the operation of the existing transportation system. Volume Two of this set of manuals was devoted to easy-to-apply manual techniques for analyzing the effect of a variety of transit oriented operations strategies. This document reproduces that manual in order that other interested agencies may apply these methods. The handbook has been written for use by engineers, planners, and analysts who are sufficiently experienced in transportation planning and operations to be able to judge the reasonableness of calculated values and to modify or substitute analytical techniques when necessary.
