New FHWA study offers help to improve Regional Transportation Operations. (Management and Administration).
The report focuses on six case studies in which innovative approaches to regional transportation operations were undertaken. The case studies involved the New York metropolitan area; the Los Angeles and San Diego metropolitan areas; the San Francisco Bay area; Houston; Phoenix; and Vancouver, British Columbia.
The case studies were selected to present a variety of approaches that differ in regional size and characteristics, organizational structure, scope, and geography. They focused on large metropolitan areas, with many findings broadly applicable to regions of all sizes. Despite differences among the locations, certain common critical elements emerged, including the importance of visionary, influential leadership and the need for a source of funding to support coordinated regional efforts.
Organizing for Regional Transportation Operations is a product of FHWA's National Dialogue on Transportation Operations (www.nawgits.com/opdialog) and was developed with assistance from the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE).
