STATE HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT VIEW OF TSM

Transportation system management is not a new concept but has been practiced as long as there have been transportation facilities. The need now is to have a balanced transportation system in which each mode does the job that it is best suited to do and for which there is an expressed need or desire. In addition, one mode is not artificially enhanced by impeding the efficiency of another mode. Achieving a balanced transportation system requires the cooperative efforts of all agencies involved. /Author/
