TSM&O Transportation Systems Management & Operations

Transportation Systems Management and Operations - known as TSM&O - uses proven traffic management strategies and technologies to improve the safety and people-moving capacity of southeast Florida's transportation system. Limited right-of-way and high construction costs make it challenging for cities to build their way out of congestion. TSM&O provides smarter and cost-effective transportation solutions to reduce delays, improve travel conditions, and reduce the need for major roadway construction projects.

Click for the regional TSM&O fact sheet of the Southeast Florida Transportation Council (SEFTC) to learn more about the strategies that are already making an impact for our region. SEFTC is a regional partnership of the Palm Beach TPA, the Broward MPO, and the Miami-Dade TPO. Learn more at SEFTC.org.
