% Travel Meeting Level of Service Targets

The percent of travel meeting Level of Service (LOS) targets is determined by summing the Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT) on roadways operating at or above FDOT targets for LOS and then dividing by the total system VMT.

As travel on Florida’s roadways has increased, the percentage of travel meeting the acceptable LOS criteria during peak hour has decreased by 3.7 percentage points since 2014. In 2019, the Florida SHS's percentage of travel meeting LOS target in the peak hour increased by 0.5 percentage points from 2018. Florida’s SHS daily percentage of travel meeting LOS criteria also increased by 0.4 percentage points.

Methodology

Methodology: % Travel Meeting Level of Service Targets

The percent of travel meeting Level of Service (LOS) targets is determined by summing the Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT) on roadways operating acceptably and then dividing by the total system VMT. “Acceptably” is defined as LOS D for all urbanized areas and LOS C for all other areas. 5:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m. on a weekday is considered as peak hour; 4:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m. on a weekday is considered as peak period.

Calculation

`(Σ ("VMT during Peak Performance" ≥ "Acceptable LOS Target Threshold"))/(Σ " VMT") ×100`
