A Planning Methodology for Intelligent Urban Transportation Systems


Urban transportation Planning is facing challenges and opportunities in the rapid developments of intelligent transportation systems. Such systems are characterized by real time information feedback in their operations and management, and by increasing levels of automation of their various components. The challenges to planning stem from the increased range and added complexity of the choices available to transportation planners. The implementation of IVHS technologies, many of which have system-wide implications will require a change in the institutional arrangements that are currently at work m transportation planning. Recent legislation, such as ISTEA and the California Congestion Management Program, has also posed a challenge to transportation planning as it requires specific processes and imposes certain mandates.
