Transportation Systems Management & Operations Master Plan

MetroPlan Orlando is developing a master plan to define and prioritize low-cost solutions that can maintain and improve the transportation system using a Transportation Systems Management & Operations (TSM&O) approach.

TSM&O solutions can improve the safety and reliability of our transportation system through technologies and communications in infrastructure and vehicles. They also can make operations more efficient. These solutions can be effective alternatives to options such as roadway widening projects, for example, which typically cost more and may have greater impacts on communities and natural areas.

The TSM&O Master Plan process will help to:

  • Define how TSM&O solutions and strategies can improve our transportation system.
  • Coordinate the TSM&O efforts of each agency in the region to create a unified and effective planning approach.
  • Prioritize TSM&O projects to be included in MetroPlan Orlando’s 2050 Metropolitan Transportation Plan.

For more information about TSM&O, see: Transportation Systems Management & Operations


The TSM&O Master Plan promotes the Vision of a safe, regional, multimodal network that uses cost-effective technology to make the most of our transportation system.

The TSM&O Master Plan Goals & Objectives address a range of issues including:

  • Safety for All Users
  • Reliability, Performance, and Resiliency of the System
  • Infrastructure Investment & Economic Impacts
  • Access, Mobility & Community Connections
  • Health & Environmental Effects
  • Transportation Equity
