Management & Operations

What is management and operations?

System management and operations (M&O) analyzes regional transportation as an interconnected set of services and systems to improve system performance through better management and use of the multimodal transportation network.

M&O is an integrated approach to optimize the performance of existing infrastructure through the implementation of multimodal, intermodal, and often cross-jurisdictional systems, services, and projects. This includes regional operations collaboration and coordination activities between transportation and public safety agencies. M&O strategies aim at improving service efficiency, enhancing public safety and security, reducing traveler delays, and improving access to information for travelers.

In identifying possible system M&O improvements, it is important to understand what system users want in terms of performance. Some examples of user-oriented performance measures are average trip travel time, length of delay, and reliability of trip making. These are important indicators of how well the transportation system is operating
