The process for developing the Tinker Air Force Base Transportation Management Plan (TMP) ranged from traffic and parking data collection, stakeholder interviews, and collaborative planning charrettes. The TMPs combined the management of the physical facilities of the system with the needs of the users of the transportation network. The planning effort was also influenced by the future requirements based on the Installation Development Plans (IDP). The ultimate goals of the strategies outlined in the TMPs are to enhance mobility, reduce traffic congestion, and improve air quality in the regions.
The project approach to developing the TMPs relied on data collection and coordination with existing efforts. The project started with establishing a baseline for existing commuter trends within the local areas and then moved on to coordination with local agencies to establish future transportation strategies.
A written report was developed with an executive summary, current conditions, employee survey results, future conditions, data analysis results, proposed programs, and monitoring and evaluation sections.
The TMP included maps of the surrounding road network, vehicular and pedestrian circulation, bicycle circulation and spaces, mass transit routes and stops, shuttle bus service, travel demand patterns and modal splits, and commute times by modal split from the highest concentrations of employee residences.
