Traffic Operations

As congestion in the region continues to increase, it is critical that we operate the transportation system as efficiently as possible. That is why a major focus of our work is on identifying approaches to better manage and operate our transportation system.

These approaches fall under the broad heading of Management and Operations. M&O includes technological tools (such as automatically detecting slow traffic, synchronizing traffic signals, and tracking transit vehicles to provide real-time information to travelers) and non-technological tools (such as coordinating maintenance schedules, improving coordination between emergency responders, and increasing communication between operators and planners on common goals for the operation of the transportation system). 

M&O Committees

Baltimore Metropolitan Council staff supports several committees that work on M&O issues and projects.
