Level of Service (LOS) determinations are a hallmark of transportation planning nationwide and, moreover, often a key reference point for discussion in highly-contested land use projects. Now, California is contemplating giving up the LOS system, which grades roadway traffic before and after a project on a scale similar to school grades, in favor of something else.
Rumor has it that new measure will be "vehicle miles traveled," or VMT, which will more directly align with the state's GHG-emissions reduction plans. But the transition could be messy. Bill Fulton, the don of California land use, has a nice blog post that explains some of the kinks that need to be worked out.
