The Role of State Department Transportations in Guiding Transportation Investments
||The purpose of this peer review was to assist TDOT as it restructures its process for planning and programming future transportation investments.
Target Setting Peer Exchange Summary Report
||Although transportation agencies have been working to integrate performance management practices into decision making for over a decade, passage of the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) has underscored the need to focus on target setting. On June 17, 2014 the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) held a one-day peer exchange in Scottsdale, Arizona on target setting and monitoring progress toward achievement. The peer exchange was part of a joint meeting of two AASHTO Standing Committees: the Standing Committee on Planning (SCOP) and the Standing Committee on Performance Management (SCOPM). Approximately 85 attendees representing more than 40 states participated in the discussions to share experiences as well as identify support and resources agencies need to successfully implement targets and monitor progress.
South Carolina DOT Peer Report: Developing Formal Asset Management Plans (February 2014)
||This report highlights key recommendations and noteworthy practices identified at the peer exchange on Developing Formal Asset Management Plans held on February 5-6, 2014 in Columbia, South Carolina. This event was sponsored by the Transportation Planning Capacity Building (TPCB) Peer Program, which is jointly funded by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Federal Transit Administration (FTA).
Roundtable on System Performance Measurement in Statewide and Metropolitan Transportation Planning
||The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) Office of the Secretary, Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), and Federal Transit Administration (FTA) sponsored the roundtable. The roundtable brought together national experts to discuss lessons learned in practical applications of transportation performance measures for systems planning and the role of measures in the decision-making process.
Performance-based Planning and Performance Measures
||This report documents the proceedings of the FHWA/FTA TPCB sponsored Performance-based Planning Peer Exchange as well as two sessions on the use of performance measures (PM) in transportation planning that took place as part of the Transportation Research Board’s (TRB) 2010 Summer Meetings in Minneapolis, Minnesota on July 13, 2010.
||This report highlights key recommendations and best practices identified at the peer exchange on performance-based evaluation criteria and transportation funding, held July 10-11, 2012 in Chicago, Illinois.
Performance Outcomes Beyond the Mainstream Peer Exchange Summary Report
||While there has been considerable advancement in performance measurement for some aspects of transportation systems, there remains a need to develop new performance measurement practices that address transportation's broader role in fostering a better quality of life. "Beyond the Mainstream" performance measures specifically address measurement of outcomes that are not traditionally measured by transportation agencies, including accessibility, economic development, and public health.
On June 20, 2014, TRB’s Statewide Multimodal Planning Committee, in partnership with FHWA and AASHTO, held a one-day peer exchange on the topic of "beyond the mainstream" performance measures. The peer exchanged focused on performance measurement of accessibility, economic development, and health impacts of transportation. The peer exchange gathered a diverse group of practitioners to hold productive discussions about the state of the practice and key challenges and research needs.
Performance Measures to Improve Transportation Planning Practice
||This report summarizes the results of a peer review on the use of performance measures to improve transportation planning and its relationship to project programming. The peer review focused on how state DOTs are using performance measures to improve planning practices. Representatives of 13 DOTs shared their approaches and discussed the successes and challenges experienced in programming and planning.
North Carolina DOT Peer Exchange on Performance Management (November 2013)
||This report summarizes the key themes and recommendations identified at a peer exchange on November 19-20, 2013 in Raleigh, North Carolina. North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) hosted peers from South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) to exchange best practices surrounding performance management. The peer exchange was sponsored by the Transportation Planning Capacity Building (TPCB) Peer Program, which is jointly funded by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Federal Transit Administration (FTA).
Non-Traditional Performance Measures
||The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials' Standing Committee on Planning has released a report that explores how state departments of transportation, metropolitan planning organizations, and public transportation agencies use non-traditional performance measures in their transportation planning and decision-making processes.
Introducing Performance Management into the MPO Planning Process
||This report highlights key recommendations and noteworthy practices identified at the peer exchange on "Introducing Performance Management into the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) Planning Process" held on June, 19, 2013 in Bismarck, North Dakota and via video teleconference. This event was sponsored by the Transportation Planning Capacity Building (TPCB) Peer Program, which is jointly funded by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Federal Transit Administration (FTA).
Incorporating Performance Measures into Regional Transportation Planning
||This report documents the key findings from a peer exchange on "Incorporating Performance Measures into Regional Transportation Planning" held on February 24, 2010 at the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) Headquarters in Washington, D.C.
