This workshop addresses the question, Why does TSM seem to have been more successful in some cities than in others? It is suggested that TSM has been more active and successful in regions with a strong metropolitan planning organization and a tradition of an active regional planning program. TSM was also more successful in regions that had resolved the issue of major capital projects in their regions. Another area of discussion concerned the review of TSM projects for technical competency. The mechanism suggested was throguh a local technical committee composed of technical representatives from all local and regional agencies. Lastly, there was a general need expressed for more research on the development of better means for evaluating alternative TSM projects, for quantifying and measuring trade-offs between alternative strategies and for assessing the effectiveness of various types of TSM improvements.
