Find out how the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) is putting performance into action.
A new USDOT fact sheet highlights the implementation process for the new performance-based and multimodal transportation program created by the 2012 Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21). Transportation performance management (TPM) is a strategic approach that uses system information to make improved investment and policy decisions in support of national performance goals.
As covered in the fact sheet, USDOT is implementing the MAP-21 performance requirements through nine interrelated rulemakings released in several phases. These rulemakings cover the categories of Planning, Highway Safety, Highway Conditions, Congestion/System Performance, and Transit Performance.
