Abstract:

This resource guide is designed to help planning and operations managers understand the value of working together and realize the benefits of pursuing management and operations strategies at the regional scale. This goes a step beyond jurisdiction and agency coordination on planning and investment. It also goes beyond regional collaboration and coordination on management and operations activities. The guide highlights how existing relationships can be strengthened and new ones developed, and how opportunities for greater coordination and collaboration can be exploited. It emphasizes the important role that both planners and operators have to play in building stronger connections and the benefits of these relationships. This resource guide describes a number of specific opportunities for improving connections between planning and operations. These opportunities are derived from an extensive review of the literature and interviews with nearly 30 transportation professionals who represent planning and operations at all levels of government. Based on the collective, practical experiences of these professionals, this guide is organized around the following linkage opportunities: (1) The Transportation Planning Process, (2) Data Sharing, (3) Performance Measures, (4) Congestion Management Systems, (5) Funding and Resource Sharing, (6) Institutional Arrangements, (7) Regional Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Architecture, (8) Regional Management and Operations Projects, and (9) Regional Concept for Transportation Operations.
