Overview of Operations

Length: Approximately 4 hours.


This course provides an overview of the field of transportation systems management and operations (TSMO), with a focus on the optimal operation of freeways and arterials as an integrated corridor system to achieve greater user mobility. It introduces the basic terminology and acronyms of the field, and provides an explanation of the manner in which TSMO relates to the structure of the transportation system and the agencies responsible for its management. The course also includes a brief discussion of performance measurement and other measures that are recommended for evaluating the overall operation of the transportation system from a TSMO perspective. It includes a description of the various strategies and tools available to the TSMO practitioner, including their potential benefits.


Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Define mobility as it relates both to the agency and the user
  • Differentiate between ITS and TSMO
  • Understand the characteristics of a transportation agency that are essential for a strong TSMO program
  • List operations strategies that have an impact on mobility
  • Identify the benefits of TSMO in comparison with traditional construction and maintenance activities
