federal congestion management process
FEDERAL CONGESTION MANAGEMENT PROCESS
  • Statewide Transportation Planning; Metropolitan Transportation Planning Final Rule
  • USDOT, FHWA 23 CFR Parts 450 and 500 (2/14/07)
  • Links Congestion Management System to planning process
  • Emphasizes operational and management strategies
  • Common performance measures and goals for CMP, LRTP and M&O
  • CMP must be a “cooperatively developed and implemented metro-wide strategy” through the use of “travel demand management strategies”
  • CMP should result in multi-modal system performance measures and strategies that can be reflected in the region-wide plan and TIP
federal congestion management process4
FEDERAL CONGESTION MANAGEMENT PROCESS

definition what is managing travel demand
DEFINITION: What is Managing Travel Demand?
  • Managing travel demand is about providing travelers, regardless of whether they drive alone, with travel choices, such as work location, route, time of travel and mode. In the broadest sense, “demand management is defined as providing travelers with effective choices to improve travel reliability.” *
  • * FHWA, 2006
travel demand strategies choices
Mode ChoiceLocation Choice

- drive alone - telework

- car- and vanpool - Transit-oriented development

- shuttle buses - Location-efficient mortgages

bike/walk - proximate commute

Time ChoiceRoute Choice

traveler info - traveler info

travel time prediction - Active Traffic Mgmt

event scheduling - HOV lanes

flex-time/CWW - congestion pricing

TRAVEL DEMAND STRATEGIES: Choices
four categories of demand strategies
FOUR CATEGORIES OF DEMAND STRATEGIES
  • OPERATIONAL
  • INFRASTRUCTURE
  • PRICING/FINANCIAL
  • INSTITUTIONAL/FACILITATION

FHWA, 2006

operational strategies
OPERATIONAL STRATEGIES
  • Improving the efficiency of the transport system by:
  • Providing real-time, multi-modal information
  • Predicting travel times
  • Active traffic management
  • Traffic management centers
  • Parking management
  • Photo enforcement
  • Improved public transport
  • Managing large-scale events and emergencies
  • Highway reconstruction mitigation

Sources:ATAC, Schreffler, Hull, AVV

operational example europe
OPERATIONAL EXAMPLE: EUROPE
  • ACTIVE TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT on M42 – UK
  • Use of hard shoulder
  • Break-down areas
  • Driver info panels
  • Speed control
  • Photo enforcement
  • CCTV

Source: Highways Agency

infrastructure strategies
INFRASTRUCTURE STRATEGIES
  • Providing advantages to sustainable choices with:
  • HOV facilities
  • Special use lanes
  • Park-and-Ride facilities
  • Access control (e.g., car-free zones)

Sources: Schreffler and Highways Agency

infrastructure example europe
INFRASTRUCTURE EXAMPLE: EUROPE
  • SPECIAL LANES IN THE NETHERLANDS
  • Rush hour lanes
    • Use of hard shoulder running
    • Peak period operations
    • Good safety record
  • Plus lanes
    • Add extra narrow lane
    • Reduced speed
  • Reversible tidal-flow lane
  • Exclusive bus and truck lanes

pricing financial strategies
PRICING/FINANCIAL STRATEGIES
  • Trigger economic incentives and disincentives with:
  • Cordon pricing in congested centers
  • Other road pricing schemes (trucks)
  • Revenue for improved transit
  • Subsidies for using alternative modes

pricing example europe
PRICING EXAMPLE: EUROPE
  • STOCKHOLM TRIAL
  • Legislated 7-month pilot test
  • Cordon around city center
  • 18 charging points; photo of plates
  • 10-20 SEK per crossing ($1.44 - $2.88)
  • 16 new bus routes; 2,800 P-n-R spaces
  • Goal = 10-15% reduction in traffic
  • Result = 19% reduction in car traffic
  • 4% increase in transit ridership
  • Emissions reduced
  • Referendum passed in city

institutional facilitative strategies
INSTITUTIONAL/FACILITATIVE STRATEGIES
  • New ways to institutionalize demand management into planning, management, and operations via:
  • Partnerships
  • Travel Planning
  • Coordination
  • New Policies

Source: AVV

institutional example europe
INSTITUTIONAL EXAMPLE: EUROPE
  • HEATHROW AREA TRANSPORT FORUM
  • Partnership of airport, towns and tenants
  • Created Surface Access Strategy
  • During planning of Heathrow Express
  • Increased transit/carpool use (10%  19%)
  • Decreased car use (78%  70%)
  • Funded with parking surcharge
  • Drive alone share decreased
  • Transit and carpool share increased
  • Consistent with “Smarter Choices”

goals and objectives
GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
  • PERFORMANCE MONITORING
  • Performance-based goals set
  • Performance monitoring used to maximize efficiency
  • Evaluation used to measure effectiveness in achieving objectives
performance goals
PERFORMANCE GOALS
  • England’s Performance Monitoring Policy

Goal: make travel times more reliable

County divided into 98 key routes; determine 90% percentile of travel times for the system

Public Service Agreement: reduce travel time for the worst 10% of congested trips or potentially lose highway funds for these routes

One solution cited in HA Business Plan: manage demand (Integrated Demand Management - IDM)

Source: Highways Agency

the key integration
THE KEY - INTEGRATION
  • Demand management should be integrated with:
    • Long-range planning
    • Land development
    • Employer/school practices
    • Planning for operations
    • Traffic management
    • System operations
    • Performance measurement

integration example
INTEGRATION EXAMPLE
  • LUNDAMATS – Lund, Sweden

Integrated, sustainable transport plan:

    • Sustainable town planning
    • Priority to bicycles
    • Extended transit (BRT)
    • Reduce car traffic
    • Employer and community transport solutions

Hull

integration example25
INTEGRATION EXAMPLE
  • LUNDAMATS – RESULTS
    • Placed priority on sustainable travel
    • Accommodated growth in travel without increasing car use
    • Reduced VMT per capita in real terms
mtd lessons learned
MTD LESSONS LEARNED
  • Lessons Learned from Europe
    • Transportation Management Thinking Is Evolving In Europe
    • Demand Management Differs From Traffic Management
    • Owners and Service Providers are Working Together
    • Demand Management Can Be Integrated Into Programs, Projects and Operations
    • Economic Growth and Traffic Management Can Co-Exist

Hull

mtd lessons learned con t
MTD LESSONS LEARNED (con’t)
  • Road Pricing Proven Effective
  • Customized Travel Time Prediction Is Possible
  • Dynamic Signing Can Influence Safety and Operations
  • Pre-Trip and Near Trip Information Can Influence Congestion
  • Performance-based Evaluation Integrated Into Processes and Policies

U.S. has a lot of experience with managing demand, but not as good as integrating into planning, management and operations

definition what is sustainable transport
DEFINITION: What is Sustainable Transport?
  • Sustainability is the simultaneous pursuit of economic prosperity, environmental quality and social equity.
  • Sustainable transport works to meet the needs of present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
