‚ÄčTransportation Systems Management & Operations (TSMO)

Transportation System Management and Operations (TSMO) programs are defined by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) as "a set of integrated strategies to optimize the performance of operations on existing infrastructure through implementation of multimodal, cross-jurisdictional systems, services, and projects designed to preserve capacity and improve security, safety, and reliability of a transportation system." In simplest terms, TSMO is a way to address reliability, mobility, and congestion by utilizing strategies rather than only building out of congestion.
