This report contains the results of research into successful planning and development of multimodal transportation projects that will provide transportation organizations and planning professionals with practical tools and guidance for establishing and sustaining partnerships. Presented as guidelines, the report provides an overview of multimodal transportation partnerships, their definition, how they are formed, why they are needed, and the types of projects that benefit from such arrangements. It also focuses on how they are organized and sustained. Finally, methods are identified for tracking, monitoring, evaluating, and dealing with various issues in maintaining partnerships. An appendix presents short abstracts of each of the 12 case studies that were prepared during the research. The guidelines report should be especially valuable to state departments of transportation, metropolitan planning organizations, and local transportation planners as well as other practitioners concerned with planning, programming, and implementing multimodal transportation projects. The report will also be useful as an educational resource into the concepts, tools, and procedures currently employed to establish and maintain partnerships in multimodal transportation planning and project development.
