Performance Indicator in Urban Transport: The Texas Governor's Business Council Process

This chapter proposes the method used in the Governor’s Business Council (GBC) report as a model for urban transport planning in other urban areas. The basic thesis is that transport and urban planning must become more objective in approach and less focused on particular projects. It must also be more based upon long-term transport improvement objects. While the GBC report was limited to roadway improvements, the same process could be applied to all modes of urban transportation, allowing public resources to be allocated to those strategies that most effectively contribute to the achievement of adopted long-term transport objectives.
