TRANSPORTATION PLANNING EFFECTIVENESS: TWENTY CASE STUDIES
This document consists of 20 site-specific case studies of urban area experience with the Technical Study Grant Program of the Urban Mass Transportation Administration (UMTA). The objective of the case studies is to determine how the Technical Study Grant Program has contributed to transportation planning effectiveness by impacting local transportation policy and decision-making or guiding capital investments. The case studies employ a standardized format which focuses on transportation planning effectiveness in terms of development of professional planning capability, acquisition of capital equipment, introduction of new or improved service, and altered institutional climate. In addition, this document contains matrices which summarize and compare urban area transportation planning effectiveness, an explanation of the urban area selection procedure, and an appendix, describing the data collection procedure.
