THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN EVALUATION FRAMEWORK FOR TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES

The general intent of the research was to conduct a practical framework which can be easily integrated into the current urban transportation planning process and which can also be adapted to previously established institutional arrangements with medium-sized metropolitan areas. For this, a systems analytic approach was applied. Based on this approach, six specific tasks were undertaken to construct such a framework: (1) the identification of specific transportation objectives which can be achieved through various TSM strategies; (2) the construction of a set of TSM performance measures or measures of effectiveness which are sensitive to TSM objectives; (3) the identification of a set of techniques to monitor the performance of TSM strategies; (4) the development of a decision rule which when given the TSM objectives, measures of effectiveness, and strategies, can be used to evaluate overall performance of TSM strategies; (5) the testing of monitoring techniques for various TSM strategies; and (6) the development of an information system for the collection, retention, and retrieval of TSM information.
