Research for the AASHTO Standing Committee on Planning. Task 21. Adapting the Transportation Planning Process to Meet Fast Paced Customer Requirements

The objective of this research is to identify strategic needs of customers of the transportation planning process for faster decision making and to identify ways the transportation planning process can be modified to be more responsive to these faster paced requirements. The products of the research will include recommendations for states and metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs) to meet these needs and recommendations for consideration in future statutory and regulatory changes at the federal level to make the transportation planning process more responsive to the fast pace of changes in needs of the transportation system. The research should be based on interviews with business leaders, state or local economic development directors, developers, executives of large retail companies, technology futurists, elected leaders, Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) of state departments of transportation (DOT's) experts in future trends in logistics and goods movements and other futurists to determine what future requirements will be for faster turnaround of the transportation planning decision making and improvement delivery process.
