Transportation programming is the step in the planning process where public funds are allocated to a set of transportation projects. While public involvement in the planning process has been increasing dramatically in the United States over the last decade, involvement in the programming step is relatively rare. This article describes a recent research effort into developing an analytic-deliberative online framework for combining traditional programming activities with enhanced public involvement. The framework utilizes both technical programming tools for allocating funds along with deliberative tools for public buy-in of the process. In addition to outlining the framework, the paper also discusses the benefits and challenges with implementing this type of process.
