AN ACCESSIBILITY CENTERED VIEW OF TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS MANAGEMENT
This paper provides an analysis of the accessibility implications of a variety of Transportation Systems Management (TSM) programs as well as other transportation, temporal, and land-use strategies. Accessibility is viewed here as an individual ability to participate in a variety of activities (i.e., work, shopping, recreation, etc.) at a variety of locations and times. A representation of human activity is presented that provides a means for simultaneously considering factors which limit freedom of action in space and over time. Benefit measures are constructed that are sensitive to both the spatial and temporal dimensions of accessibility.
