Abstract: The objectives of this symposium are to acquaint the profession with innovative practices for managing transportation resources during a time of fiscal constraint. The ideas and approaches given focus on ground transportation in urban areas and treat both highway and transit modes. Three main areas of discussion include: (1) Cost effective operational strategies; and (3) resource, financing, and management options. Some case studies illustrate ideas and techniques such as an experimental fare and transfer package in Chiacgo the management approach used by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, and a method of financing street maintenance used by the city of Fort Collins, Colorado.
