COST-ORIENTED METHODOLOGY FOR SHORT-RANGE TRANSPORTATION PLANNING

A transportation planning methodology is proposed that is more adaptable and responsive to short-range issues than is the existing transportation planning process, which was designed as a long-range methodology. The suggested planning process (a) approaches conclusions in an iterative manner, (b) has flexibility in the ordering of steps in the procedure, and (c) requires fewer data. Although demand analysis constitutes a key component in the methodology, emphasis is on a comparative cost impact evaluation framework, in contrast to a demand forecasting approach. The 1-66/Metro corridor near Washington, D.C., is used to illustrate one cycle of the analysis. /Author/
