Transportation Systems Management and Operations Workforce Guidebook

In This Article:

Transportation Systems Management and Operations (TSMO) allows transportation agencies to manage, maintain, and improve the performance of existing transportation systems. Transportation agencies, private sector partners, and others may benefit from reviewing the TSMO Workforce Guidebook, released through the Transportation Research Board’s National Cooperative Highway Research Program.

The guidebook describes methods for recruiting TSMO personnel, TSMO-related positions, educational programs, and more topics related to developing and maintaining a skilled workforce. As positions and systems evolve over time, existing positions such as engineers, planners, and ITS professionals are likely to also be involved in TSMO.
