System Efficiency: Extent of Congestion (Objective Category)The intent is to manage the proportion of the transportation system that experiences recurring congestion (the spatial extent of congestion). Common expressions of recurring congestion are volume-to-capacity (V/C) ratio and level of service (LOS), which is measured in terms of travel speed or delay.

Since the mapping between objectives and service packages is not always straight-forward and often situation-dependent, these mappings should only be used as a starting point. Users should do their own analysis to identify the best service packages for their region.
