Developments regarding decision making in the transport sector has revealed an increasing need for involving stakeholders in the decision support process in order to capture all aspects of the often complex decision problems. This paper proposes the use of planning workshops and multi-criteria decision analysis to gather stakeholders and decision makers with the purpose of improving the final decision making by including a collaborative planning approach. An outline is made for how the planning workshop can be used for real decision support at different organizational levels in the process.
