|What is TSM?
|Transportation Systems Management (TSM) is a strategy aimed at improving the overall performance of the transportation network without resorting to large-scale, expensive capital improvements. TSM integrates techniques from across disciplines to increase safety, efficiency and capacity for all modes in the transportation system.|
|Examples of TSM actions:|
TSM as a planning process at the MIC
The MIC works to strengthen the link between the planning it does and the operations & maintenance performed by area jurisdictions. By including TSM as a planning activity at the MPO level, the MIC aims to bring together all the agencies and jurisdictions needed for the successful implementation of TSM improvements.
Internally, TSM means “evaluation” at the MIC. It is a regularly run, data-driven process for identifying and prioritizing “locations of concern” throughout the system. Results of the analyses are presented to the jurisdictions and relevant agencies, who’s input are sought in developing recommended TSM solutions.
