The CMP, a federally mandated program for all regions with populations greater than 200,000, establishes an objective set of performance measures to define and quantify transportation system congestion. It includes a toolbox of strategies to address congestion; a methodology to evaluate and prioritize congestion-reducing projects and strategies; and a mechanism to periodically assess the effectiveness of implemented strategies. In order to fulfill federal requirements, NYMTC produces a Congestion Management Process Status Report every four years in conjunction with the release of its Regional Transportation Plan. NYMTC issued its first CMP report in 2005, and reports have been issued every four years.
