Transportation Congestion Relief Through Urban Partnership Agreements
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The United States Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT) is taking a bold step in dealing with metropolitan area congestion by promoting and funding demonstrations of congestion pricing and other strategies aimed at reducing congestion. The key policy question is the effectiveness of these strategies. An evaluation is designed to answer this question by measuring the benefits, impacts and value of each metropolitan area's approach to congestion reduction. In addition, evaluation of multiple sites will demonstrate how well the strategies perform under different situations. This book addresses congressional interest in how well the Department of Transportation communicated Urban Partnership Agreements (UPA) selection criteria, whether it had discretion to allocate grant funds to UPA recipients and consider congestion pricing as a priority selection factor, and how it is ensuring that UPA award conditions are met and results are assessed. This book reviewed departmental documents, statutes and case law, and interviewed department officials and UPA applicants. This book consists of public documents which have been located, gathered, combined, reformatted, and enhanced with a subject index, selectively edited and bound to provide easy access.
