    • Abstract:
      The Internet is a unique medium for the distribution of information, and it provides a tremendous opportunity to take advantage of peoples innate interest in transportation issues as they relate to their own lives. In particular, the World Wide Web (WWW), with its ease of use and graphical nature, will allow us to better explain and illustrate transportation ideas and solutions. The Boston Metropolitan Planning Organization has created a Congestion Management System (CMS) site. Three goals have been established for the CMS site. The first is to provide another vehicle to encourage public participation. Secondly, it allows people to search for only what interests them, to pursue threads, and to send comments to us. Lastly, it allows us to present background information for people who are interested in more details. This latter goal in particular is a work in progress - information will be made available on-line gradually, as we gain the knowledge and have the resources. This paper briefly summarizes the justification and current state of the Congestion Management System World Wide Web page for the Boston MPO. The Web is being used as part of the larger public participation process of the CMS, but targeting a different audience and providing information in previously impossible ways. While this paper talks about how the site will distribute information, the best way to see and understand its use will be online. 6p.
