Case Studies in Using Reliability Performance Measures in Transportation Planning

TRB SHRP2 Program

Overview

This technical memorandum provides information from six sample case studies performed under the project for the Knoxville Regional Transportation Planning Organization, Florida Department of Transportation, Los Angeles Metropolitan Transit Authority, Southeast Michigan Council of Goverments, Colorado DOT/Denver Regional Council of Governments, and the Washington State Department of Transportation.

The overall project was to develop the technical procedures for state DOTs and MPOs to fully integrate mobility and reliability performance measures and strategies into the transportation planning and programming processes. The project developed the following additional supporting materials:

  • Guide to Incorporating Reliability Performance Measures into the Transportation Planning and Programming Processes
  • Incorporating Reliability Performance Measures into the Transportation Planning and Programming Processes: Technical Reference
  • Presentation on Incorporating Reliability Performance Measures into the Transportation Planning and Programming Processes
  • Incorporating Reliability Performance Measures into the Transportation Planning and Programming Processes Final Report
  • Reliability Assessment Processor
