A Traffic Impact Assessment is a single mode analytical tool that is used to evaluate new development proposals. Its use continues at a time when the transportation community is being called upon to offer solutions that transcend just autos and highways. The tool can be adapted by adding other modes of local travel to the analysis. Improvements to these modes will often not be to increase capacity but to determine design and operational features that improve attractiveness.
