MINNEAPOLIS-ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA, A CASE STUDY PRESENTED AT THE TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE

This paper describes the transportation system management (TSM) approach to planning and development in the Twin Cities metropolitan area. This paper presents a brief overview of long-range planning in the area and an abstract of the plan. Several TSM projects that have been implemented are generally described to indicate the basis for the optimistic confidence the area has in the TSM approach to planning and implementation. The Twin Cities transportation plan, both its long-range and TSM elements, is based in great part on the knowledge derived from past projects designed to more effectively use existing investments. The TSM projects include bus on metered freeway, preferential transit lanes, computer traffic control system, skyways, and pooling.
