This research supports the Virginia Department of Transportations (VDOT) efforts to generate transportation performance measures. Through a review of performance measures created by 25 states, the research suggests 45 different performance measures to VDOT. The performance measures collectively aim at achieving VDOTs goal of effectively coordinating transportation and land use planning efforts. Each performance measure falls within one of seven objectives: increase the number of transportation options (use modal data), increase the number of transportation options (do not use modal data), improve the quality of existing transport options, improve public services or economic growth, protect or manage corridors, align state and local efforts, and reduce land consumption (and other environmental measures.
