URBAN TRANSPORTATION PLANNING SYSTEM (UTPS)

A tool for multimodal transportation planning developed by the Urban Mass Transportation Administration and the Federal Highway Administration. It is used for both long- and short-range planning, particularly system analysis, and covers both computerized and manual planning methods. UTPS consists of computer programs, attendant documentation, user guides, and manuals that cover one or more of five analytical categories: highway network analysis, transit network analysis, demand estimation, data capture and manipulation, and sketch planning.
