TRB’s second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP 2) Report S2-L06-RR-2: Guide to Improving Capability for Systems Operations and Management examines the way transportation agencies should be organized to successfully execute operations programs that improve travel time reliability.

After the guide was submitted for publication, the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) converted the SHRP 2 Reliability Project L06 research into a web-based tool that is designed to be user-friendly, easy to access, and updatable. The web tool, Transportation Systems Management and Operations Guidance , is available on the AASHTO website at

An e-book version of this report is available for purchase at Google, iTunes, and Amazon.

The same project that produced SHRP 2 Report S2-L06-RR-2 also produced SHRP 2 Report S2-L06-RR-1: Institutional Architectures to Improve Systems Operations and Management.
