planning factors
Planning Factors

Under the provisions of SAFETEA-LU, all Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) are required to consider eight (8) broad planning factors in the development of multi-modal transportation plans and programs. SAFETEA-LU requires that “the metropolitan transportation planning process for a metropolitan area...shall provide for consideration of projects and strategies that will...” accomplish the following objectives.

planning factors1
Planning Factors
  • Support the economic vitality of the metropolitan area, especially by enabling global competitiveness, productivity, and efficiency
  • Increase the safety of the transportation system for all motorized and non-motorized users
  • Increase the ability of the transportation system to support homeland security and to safeguard the personal security of all motorized and non-motorized users
planning factors2
Planning Factors
  • Increase accessibility and mobility of people and freight
  • Protect and enhance the environment, promote energy conservation, improve the quality of life, and promote consistency between transportation improvements and State and local planned growth and economic development patterns
planning factors3
Planning Factors
  • Enhance the integration and connectivity of the transportation system, across and between modes, for people and freight
  • Promote efficient system management and operation
  • Emphasize the preservation of the existing transportation system
arts 2030 goals and objectives
ARTS 2030 Goals and Objectives
  • Goal 1: Develop a Transportation System Integrated with Planned Land Use (PF 7)
    • Objective 1: Promote orderly development of the region by providing transportation services to those areas where growth is planned.
    • Objective 2: Discourage development in conservation or preservation areas by limiting access to those areas.
    • Objective 3: Promote revitalization of the urban core through improved accessibility.
    • Objective 4: Promote redevelopment of the urban fringe through improved accessibility.
arts 2030 goals and objectives1
ARTS 2030 Goals and Objectives
  • Goal 2: Develop a Transportation System that is Financially and Politically Feasible and has Broad Support (PF 8)
    • Objective 1: Provide a financially balanced plan based on realistic funding availability and opportunities.
    • Objective 2: Provide a plan that works to preserve existing facilities and operate them more efficiently.
    • Objective 3: Prepare a plan where total benefits exceed costs.
    • Objective 4: Provide a plan that includes public participation from all groups, with special emphasis in reaching environmental justice populations.
arts 2030 goals and objectives2
ARTS 2030 Goals and Objectives
  • Goal 3: Develop a Transportation System that will allow Effective Mobility Throughout the Region and Provide Efficient Movement of Persons and Goods (PF 1, 4 & 6)
    • Objective 1: Provide a plan that works to relieve congestion and prevent it in the future.
    • Objective 2: Provide a transportation plan that realizes the importance of public transportation as a viable option in meeting daily travel needs.
    • Objective 3: Provide a plan which positions public transportation as a viable alternative to single occupant vehicles, through routing and scheduling changes and other system improvements.
    • Objective 4: Provide a plan which addresses consideration of non-motorized modes such as bicycles and pedestrians.
    • Objective 5: Provide a plan which addresses the needs of intermodal movement of goods via rail and truck.
arts 2030 goals and objectives3
ARTS 2030 Goals and Objectives
  • Goal 4: Develop a Transportation System that will Enhance the Economic, Social, and Environmental Fabric of the Area, Using Resources Wisely While Minimizing Adverse Impacts (PF 5)
    • Objective 1: Provide a plan that increases job accessibility through improved transportation systems.
    • Objective 2: Provide a plan that ensures that new transportation facilities result in disruption or displacement of residential or commercial areas only when the benefits to the community at large outweigh the costs and where no viable alternative exists.
    • Objective 3: Provide a plan that works to ensure that transportation facilities avoid historic areas and structures, and other environmentally sensitive areas, while providing access when desired.
    • Objective 4: Provide a plan to enhance the appearance of transportation facilities whenever possible.
    • Objective 5: Provide a plan that reduces mobile emissions and meets air quality standards.
