dc.description.abstractThe TMA Traffic Operations Survey was developed, which focused on traffic operations services and transportation system management practices of TMOs. The survey had the following structure: background, membership, services, and follow-up. The survey was emailed to 157 TMOs around the nation and 35 responses were received, a 22.2% response rate. Of the participating organizations only five (17%) organizations provided traffic services including traffic control improvements, signal timing, and collection of traffic data. These findings determined that a minority of organizations are involved in traffic operations. The multiple organizations that are involved in traffic operations provided data on their websites including incident alerts, live traffic views, and real-time traffic or shuttle information. Very few of the organizations that used data to provide traffic operations services generated the data themselves. The research results determined that few organizations are actively attempting to assume a role in traffic operations.
