The report provides an inventory and analysis of 156 projects in Denmark, France, West Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Transportation system management (tsm) is concerned with strategies that make the most efficient use of existing transportation systems by means of low cost improvements. The following eleven classes of strategy were considered: paratransit, parking control, pedestrian/bicycle priority treatment, pricing, traffic engineering techniques, traffic restraint, transit management and marketing, transit operations, goods movement, work schedule. The study procedure is described: a literature study, initial contacts and identification of projects, completion of inventory forms, visits and interviews in the six selected countries. The projects identified are reviewed and the characteristics of the projects for each of the selected countries are described. Each of the eleven strategies is considered separately.
