New Webinar: Transportation Management Center Performance Dashboards

July 21, 2020 from 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm EDT

The TMC PFS and FHWA jointly sponsored the development of the TMC Performance Dashboard technical report.  This report highlights issues to consider and successful practices to support agencies planning, designing, developing, assessing, and using dashboards as they manage and explore opportunities to improve the performance of their TMCs. A webinar will be hosted on 21 July to present – in between others – how these dashboards can be used to assess and improve operations.

This report and additional information on the TMC PFS will be available electronically at: https://tmcpfs.ops.fhwa.dot.gov/completedproj.htm.  Additional resources and information can be found on the NOCoE traffic management systems portal at: https://transportationops.org/traffic-management-systems-and-centers. This webinar to be hosted on 21 July from 2:00 to 4:00 EDT will explore the purpose, concept, and issues agencies should consider with planning, developing and using performance dashboards for their TMCs.
