Research for the AASHTO Standing Committee on Public Transportation. Task 67. Multi-Modal Project Planning

At a recent American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) meeting of the Standing Committees on Planning, Environment and Public Transportation, the Utah, Colorado and Florida Departments of Transportation (DOTs) presented examples of coordinated planning efforts that bring together the State DOT, the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPOs) and regional transit agencies to plan for and advance transportation solutions that are multi-modal in nature. A synthesis of multi-modal transportation projects coordinated planning efforts performed by State DOTs, the MPOs and regional transit agencies is needed to assist those entities with how to succeed in coordinated planning of multi-modal transportation projects, in particular coordinated road and transit projects. The objective of this research is to examine and document current practices in multimodal transportation planning that is aimed at advancing transportation solutions, in particular transit projects. This research should identify successful strategies and efforts used to coordinate multimodal planning efforts among DOTs, MPOs and other jurisdictions. Case studies that focus specifically on how these multimodal planning efforts have succeeded in advancing the State DOT’s role in delivering or assisting in the delivery of multi-modal transportation solutions should be conducted. Research is in progress.
