    • Abstract:
      It's to be expected—large numbers of people all trying to reach their destinations at the same time, usually during peak hours. Drivers are used to the everyday congestion and they plan for it. They don't like it, but they leave home early enough to get to work on time. It's the unexpected congestion that troubles travelers the most from day to day. A trip that usually takes a half-hour, with little or no warning, takes an hour. Now the motorist is late for work, has missed a doctor's appointment, or is facing hefty childcare penalties for picking up the kids late. Maybe a trucker gets held up in unexpected traffic, making shipments late to the manufacturer, disrupting just-in-time delivery, and losing the competitive edge on other shippers. Travelers want travel time reliability—a consistency or dependability in travel times, as measured from day to day or across different times of day. Drivers want to know that a trip will take a half-hour today, a half-hour tomorrow, and so on.
