The Mosaic Programs Guide is designed to provide information on a variety of beneficial programs that jurisdictions may want to include in the bundles they are evaluating. The programs are transportation actions that can help meet the goals of the nine Mosaic categories of transportation system performance—access, equity, mobility, quality of life, safety, environmental quality, and economic vitality—that are not typically be included in a capital improvement plan. The programs are designed to help achieve those goals through an emphasis on efficient operations and reducing vehicle demand rather than capital investments.
The Programs Guide includes 20 programs in the following six subject areas. For each program, a Program Description Sheet is included in the Guide that describes the program and provides information on where the program is being used, how it relates to the Mosaic Categories of Transportation System Performance, what is known about the benefits and costs of the program, and implementation resources. Individual case studies on program effectiveness, frequently from the Pacific Northwest, are also included. The Program Description Sheets aid in identifying and implementing the mix of programs best suited to a community's needs.
