Both the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments and the 1991 Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act require reducing congestion to improve air quality, to use existing transportation facilities more efficiently, or to increase mobility of people and goods. Meeting these goals means identifying appropriate and realistic data for measuring congestion, facility efficiency, and travel mobility. Six congestion management and performance monitoring systems are reviewed for data types used to monitor congestion. The data found are categorized and compared to identify and recommend key data types that could be used in a congestion management system. Recommendations identify data that can be easily manipulated to produce additional informative measurements and that are likely to be available to most transportation agencies.
