A number of plans have been developed in Houston that set out values and goals for mobility, and several agencies are responsible for developing transportation projects to meet the need. To facilitate informed decisions about the mobility options, the City of Houston created Mobility Planning (CMP) Process that can be used to select projects with the most potential to improve mobility. Key elements of the CMP Process include a travel demand model that accurately reflects travel demand and available â€˜supply,â€™ a â€˜toolkitâ€™ for identifying proposed solutions, and measures of effectiveness that can be used to evaluate the extent to which selected solutions are effective in improving mobility within the City and its Extraterritorial Jurisdiction (ETJ).
The outcomes of Phase I was technical memorandums that provide the framework for a transportation planning process that aims to improve agency coordination and help how the City finds effective transportation solutions.
