AN EXAMINATION OF POLICY IMPLICATIONS OF CRITERIA THAT DETERMINE REGIONAL TRANSPORTATION PRIORITIES

This research examines the issues surrounding ISTEA legislation, especially that which is centered around MPOs. ISTEA mandates that MPOs conduct comprehensive long range plans within the financial constraints of the individual region. ISTEA legislation also requires MPOs to address a number of categories in their analysis of potential transportation projects. These categories are reviewed to determine how they are used in the selection of projects to receive funding. The review and examination of planning documents from MPOs throughout the U.S. will indicate which factors they emphasize in determining policy criteria of project selection.
