MIS SUCCESSES AND CHALLENGES

An overview is given of the experience to date in national major investment studies (MISs) in transportation. The discussion covers how well the goals of MISs are being achieved, identifies six challenges that remain, and concludes with a summary of ongoing Federal Transit Administration/Federal Highway Administration activities. The six challenges identified are: (1) Broadening the understanding of the MIS process; (2) Adjusting to new institutional relationships; (3) Involving resource agencies; (4) Determining the appropriate level of detail; (5) Developing better methods for evaluating multimodal alternatives; and (6) Relating MIS to the regional context.
