MANAGING THE TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM
The objective of the Baltimore Region Transportation Systems Management Plan (TSM) is to formulate a coordinated set of regional strategies to ensure that the utilization of existing highway and transit facilities is maximized, the use of low-occupancy vehicles is reduced and the bus transit system is strenghtened. The regional transportation planning process has identified the following such strategies as alternatives that hold the greatest promise of achieving systems management objectives and transportation goals in the Baltimore Region: Provide preferential treatment for high-occupancy vehicles; encourage ride sharing; encourage transit ridership; establish alternative work schedule programs; improve parking management; improve traffic operations; and improve bicycle facilities. Tables are included which summarize the most promising strategies and techniques, and service as well, as an annual component of the recommended systems management plan.
