Abstract: Over the past five years the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), in conjunction with the twenty-one Florida Metropolitan Planning Organizations, has developed the Florida Standard Urban Transportation Modeling Structure (FSUTMS) for computer programs used in long-range system-wide transportation planning. The intent of this effort has been to provide a single uniform modeling structure which could be used in all of Florida's large urbanized areas. The FSUTMS is based on the Urban Transportation Planning System (UTPS) computer programs distributed by the Federal Highway Administration and the Urban Mass Transportation Administration. These computer programs along with fortran programs developed at FDOT in conjunction with several transportation planning consultants form the basis of the FSUTMS. The FSUTMS is run on the FDOT IBM 3081 mainframe computer. To ease application by users at FDOT and at the Florida MPOs, the programs have been grouped into several modules and are executed through menu driven input/output routines.
