Transportation System Management (TSM) is a planning concept which views existing streets and highways, rail trackage, parking and pedestrian facilities and transportation vehicles - private and public - as elements of a single urban transportation system. The development of the concept has been guided by certain considerations: the need to make better and more efficient use of existing transportation facilities; the focus of attention on operational strategies so that benefits can be realized from transportation programs; the promotion of a more rational organization of public transportation and a more intelligent and socially responsible use of the private automobile. Current achievements such as increasing the people-carrying capacity of highways are briefly reviewed.
