Planning Goals/Framework: Establish the overall vision and goals for the corridor as well as how to operationalize those goals using qualitative or quantitative metrics. For example, one goal might be to improve the efficiency of transit service in the corridor, and it may be operationalized through an analysis of changes in transit speeds.
