The Transportation Master Plan, includes the processes of producing, election and evaluating process for scenarios that can respond to transportation problems. In this election process, a scenario should be selected by a scientific method as transportation plan from among the determined alternatives. This study explains in details how inter-scenario selection criteria are determined by using the analytic hierarchy process that is a multi-criteria evaluation method in transportation master plan implementation processes. The effectiveness of mathematical model, which is set up in the selection processes, is discussed in particular with respect to the Ankara region and the prospective estimates and results are evaluated depending on the selected alternative.
