Performance Measures

Legislation & Requirements

MAP-21 and the FAST Act legislation required USDOT to establish transportation performance measures, and required States and Regions to set performance targets for those measures.  There are five groupings of performance measures: three groupings mandated by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and two by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA).  The three FHWA measure groupings are Safety, Pavement and Bridges, and System Performance. The two FTA measure groupings are Transportation Asset Management (TAM) and Transit Safety. They are required of both state departments of transportation and metropolitan planning organizations, which will work together towards meeting these targets. If state DOT’s and MPO’s do not comply, federal funding for state and local transportation projects may be affected. The regulatory basis of the performance measures can be found in Chapter 23 of the Code of Federal Regulations Part 490 (23 CFR Part 490).
