Benefit Measures, Values, and Future Impacts of ITS 33 In the third stage of the innovation, the structure of the surrounding system, in this case the city, has adapted to the car so it can perform at still lower costs and increasing gain to individuals, at least in terms of the costs they currently confront and perceive when making their travel decisions.

Evaluation can also be done at any point along the life cycle from planning to termination, for purposes of monitoring the deployment to see if it is meeting performance targets. The same BCA framework serves all of these purposes. The intent of the following examples is to illustrate the information requirements for BCA and to show how the data and performance parameters are used in the analysis. None of the examples offer a complete analysis of a project, but together they seek to highlight steps in the evaluation where critical information typically is missing.

Thus, as we approach the third stage of innovation, transportation planners need to think in terms of new regional structures and boundaries. More and more, we are living in regional cities—in regional places—and it is the region, transcending old urban area boundaries, that functions in the global economic landscape.
