The status of transportation system management (TSM) in Connecticut is given. The attitudes and actions of 13 regional planning agencies and 9 city traffic agencies are identified as obtained from a questionnaire survey and follow-up interviews conducted from 1983 to 1985. Both types of agencies perceived TSM as mainly traffic engineering, and traffic engineering improvements dominated the list of projects implemented. These agencies took a pragmatic approach to TSM, in which selling improvements is more important than studying them, and they cited examples of application as an important need. A continuing effort to broaden the scope of TSM and to emphasize its coordinative and complementary aspects is also stressed.
