  • Abstract:
    Sustainable transportation can be viewed as the provision of safe, effective, and efficient

    access and mobility into the future while considering economic, social, and environmental

    needs. For the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) to assess options and monitor

    progress toward achieving the goals of sustainable transportation it is essential that the

    underlying sustainability-related goals and objectives be quantified and applied to project,

    corridor, and network levels for planning, operation, and maintenance.

    In recognition of this need, TxDOT sponsored research under project 0-5541 “Developing

    Sustainable Transportation Measures for TxDOT’s Strategic Plan.” The overall goal of this

    project was to develop sustainable transportation performance measures for TxDOT’s

    strategic goals and objectives as well as a framework for TxDOT to implement a sustainable

    transportation system in Texas. The end result of this framework is a user-friendly analysis

    tool developed in Microsoft Excel® to serve as a platform for evaluating the performance

    measures and combining them into a final sustainability index.

    This chapter serves as an introduction to the User’s Manual for Sustainable Transportation

    Performance Measures Calculator. This chapter also highlights the intended audience for

    the material and lists the remaining chapters in this user’s manual.
