STATEWIDE TRANSPORTATION PLANNING PROGRAM

ALTHOUGH STATEWIDE TRANSPORTATION PLANNING IS MORE COMPLEX AND OF A BROADER SCALE THAN URBAN PLANNING, THE SAME PLANNING PROCESS CAN BE FOLLOWED BY BOTH. THE SIX STEPS FOLLOWED BY URBAN TRANSPORTATION PROGRAMS THROUGHOUT THE UNITED STATES ARE: (1) STATEMENT OF OBJECTIVES, (2) INVENTORY OF EXISTING CONDITIONS, (3) DEVELOPMENT OF INTERRELATIONSHIPS BASED ON INVENTORY DATA, (4) FORECAST RELATED TO TRAVEL-GENERATING BASES, (5) DEVELOPMENT AND EVALUATION OF ALTERNATIVE PLANS, AND (6) IMPLEMENTATION OF PLANS. THE ELEMENTS OF THE COMPREHENSIVE PLANNING PROCESS ARE DISCUSSED, AND THE PROGRESS INDICATED IN NEW YORK STATE. METHODOLOGY AND CAPABILITIES ARE EXPECTED TO IMPROVE IN THE PROGRAM'S SECOND YEAR SO THAT THE STATE'S BALANCED TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM WILL COME CLOSER TO REALITY.
