Development of Actions
Input from the public, community leaders, government stakeholders and employers, combined with research about established best practices and innovative new approaches, informed the action development process.
The mobility action process was supported by multiple stakeholders at each step. The PMT guided the direction and reviewed technical progress throughout, and the TAC and SAG shared input at key transition points. Many action ideas came from the more than 2,000 responses collected through our community survey.
Linking Actions to the MAP Vision
Each goal associates with several specific and measurable performance metrics. In the refinement process, each mobility action is rated on its directness of connection to each of MAP’s goals.
Goal 1: Reliability
Consistency of average travel time at AM peak
Percentage of time existing HOV lanes operate above 45 mph
On-time performance of transit using the corridor
Customer-perceived reliability of US-101
Goal 2: High Capacity Options
Person throughput (general purpose lanes)
Person throughput (Express Lanes)
Average vehicle occupancy
Transit ridership on parallel north-south corridors
Goal 3: Healthy and Sustainable Communities
Collisions, including bike and ped, at highway access points
Bike mode share
Walk mode share
Rate of asthma attacks
Further, feedback from community leaders gets incorporated using the STEPS (Spatial, Temporal, Economic, Physiological, Social) framework, which categorizes five barriers faced by users of the transportation network. To overcome these barriers, proposed equity actions leverage investment in mobility actions to serve the community’s most vulnerable populations.
Getting Ready for Action
To prepare 101-MAP partners for action and inform priorities, the PMT assessed four key elements of each action. The scoring methodology for each is described in detail in this Briefing Book appendix.
Its readiness for implementation
Its costliness with respect to operational funding
Its potential lead implementers
Its potential to generate new revenue
Combined, this process generates a mobility action scorecard, which informs future prioritization and implementation actions.
