Transportation Systems Management & Operations
Regional Transportation System Management and Operations (RTSMO) has become an important part of the transportation planner's vocabulary. It has become increasingly important in metropolitan areas that we manage various elements of the system - freeways, arterial streets, transit operations, port operations - to achieve the greatest efficiency. Techniques range from congestion pricing to incident management.
The Working Group shares strategies on planning for operations, including best practices for the Congestion Management Process that is required by federal law for large MPOs.
The Management and Operations Working Group includes representatives of MPOs, NYSDOT, FHWA, and other partner agencies.
