  • Description:
    The implementor and operator of a regional transportation management center (TMC) face a challenging task. Operators of TMCs—the primary point of coordination for managing transportation resources—typically control millions of dollars of intelligent transportation system (ITS) equipment implemented regionwide. Yet relatively sparse material has been published regarding TMC implementation and operation. Thus, to support the TMC’s implementation and operation, the implementor and operator have had to depend on personal experience, the knowledge and expertise of other individuals within their agency, a personal network within the transportation trade, and the firm or firms hired to assist the agency implementing the TMC. Developing and documenting a concept of operations forces the implementing agency to explicitly address and understand operational issues, such as staffing, education, and training; information and control sharing; and the decision-making hierarchy. It also assists in more clearly defining the system configuration and information content, user interface, and other system parameters for the system designer and developer. This document provides information on operations at various TMCs within the United States and Canada. While a primary focus of each of these centers is freeway management, several are also responsible for traffic signal system operation and various aspects of transit system management.
