The transportation planning profession lacks documentation and examples of explicit procedures for determining the feasibility of specific Transportation System Management (TSM) strategies and when warranted, their planning and design. A series of tasks that define a method for investigating one TSM strategy, i.e., express bus-fringe parking transit service, are described. The methodology addresses the following tasks: (1)Feasibility study; (2)designation of potential lot sites; (3)demand analysis for alternative sites; (4)evaluation and comparison of potential lot sites; and (5)the development and marketing of the transit service. The set of procedures that are identified and applied are recommended as a standard method for planning express bus-fringe parking transit.
