BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, A CASE STUDY PRESENTED AT THE TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE

The Boston case study deals with the development of an automobile-restricted zone (ARZ) in the retail center of the city through a reordering of circulation patterns of all the transportation elements converging in the area: private automobile, transit, service vehicles, taxis, pedestrians, and paratransit vehicles. This plan is one of several TSM elements included in the broad transportation plan for the Boston region. Two aspects of the plan are discussed in this report: First, this plan reflects the development of Boston's transportation policy during the past several years. Second, the implementation of a TSM element can be a complex process. TSM strategies, the ARZ development process, and the implementation of the ARZ plan are included in this case study.
