With the increased emphasis by the U.S. Congress and the Federal Transit Administration on transit performance and asset management, state departments of transportation (DOTs) are actively working to develop effective and measurable performance objectives to support a variety of state and federal program objectives. These objectives include maximizing the use of existing assets, enhancing transit service in rural areas, and supporting mobility, accessibility, and economic competitiveness goals.
ICF's webinar highlighted a report ICF recently completed for the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) on current and best practices in the use of public transportation performance measures by state DOTs.
Drawing on results from a nationwide survey of state DOTs and interviews with staff at state DOT public transportation divisions, this report presents findings on the types of public transportation performance measures being used by state DOTs and how public transportation performance measures are being applied, as well as motivations for using performance measures and challenges faced in linking public transportation performance measures to investment decisions. Based on this national scan, the document highlights best practices in selecting public transportation performance measures, conducting data collection and analysis, reporting, and using performance measures to affect investment decisions.
