Long‐term Transportation Management Strategies in the Context of Low‐density Development at the Urban Fringe

This project aims to develop informed management strategies for urban transportation systems, incorporating exhaustive, essential factors affecting urban transformation scenarios due to low‐density development at the urban fringe. This project will apply a standardized SBA that will be developmentally applied by integrating a decision‐making trial and evaluation laboratory (DEMATEL). The standardized SBA is multidisciplinary and top‐down approach for this project to forecast important and uncertain factors related to transportation management strategies for sustainable urban growth under different future urban transformation scenarios. DEMATEL is used to analyze the cause effect relationships among factors and accounts for the inherent fuzziness of survey results to improve the reliability of project results (e.g., scenarios and strategies for each scenario). The specific objectives of the proposed project are: (1) develop a list of factors that influence the uncertainty of optimal transportation management strategies related to urban growth; (2) create urban transformation scenarios, assessing the performance impacts and uncertainty degrees of the factors; (3) determine the optimal transportation management strategies for each scenario; and (4) develop a decision‐making support tool for a transportation agency to utilize to determine the best‐fit transportation management strategies.
