CONFERENCE ON TRANSPORTATION PARTNERSHIPS: IMPROVING URBAN MOBILITY THROUGH PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS, DALLAS, TEXAS, MARCH 14-15, 1984. WORKSHOP SUMMARIES: PUBLIC-PRIVATE COOPERATION IN TRANSPORTATION AND REAL ESTATE DEVELOPMENT--TRANSPORTATION MANAGEMENT IN LARGE SCALE SUBURBAN DEVELOPMENTS

Travel demand has continued to grow while public capital funding for construction of transportation facilities has been declining. One approach to solving this problem is transportation system management (TSM) for responding to differences between demand and supply. TSM objectives include: (1) response to government regulations; (2) marketing; (3) response to congestion. Typical responses include: (1) encouragement of ridesharing; (2) employer associations to bring economics of scale to TSM programs; (3) a basis for determining the amount of private contribution to highway improvement programs; (4) direct provision of vanpools or transit; (5) fostering of high-occupany vehicle lanes on highways. Most responses have been to immediate problems and it is too early to determine the equity, performance and precedents invovled with such programs. It is also difficult to show economic benefits. However their values as an alternative available to individual employees in times of need and to society in times of emergency shortage may be as important as actual short-range changes in transportation characteristics.
