Analytical methodologies are described (in Volume I) and illustrated (in Volume II) for use by metropolitan planning organizations and other state and local transportation agencies in analyzing the air quality potential of candidate urban transportation measures. As sketch planning techniques, the methods are designed to produce first-cut estimates of a proposed transportation measure's impact for a relatively small investment of time and effort. Quantitative methods oriented to auto restricted zones, high occupancy vehicle priorities, transit improvements, parking programs, carpool/vanpool incentives, and staggered work hours are provided. The methods use worksheet, programmable calculator, and computerized approaches to apply disaggregate behavioral models. They can be used to predict traveller demand as a function of transportation system characteristics, transportation facility operations as a function of their usage and their physical characteristics, and special impacts including vehicular emissions, fuel consumption, and operating costs. Guidelines are provided both to those responsible for designing the transportation-air quality analysis approaches in specific local areas, and to those who will carry out these analyses. In addition, references are provided to documents which provide additional detail on the methods.
