Performance Measures

Transit Asset Management Performance Measures and Targets

As required by federal law, transit providers in the Capital Area metropolitan planning area must have completed (or joined in a Group Plan) agency specific Transit Asset Management Plans and updated their transit asset performance measures and performance targets for the various asset classes. In September 2018 the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO) Executive Board adopted the 2018-2019 regional performance targets below: 

2018 Transit Asset Management Performance Measures and Targets

2018-2019 Proposed Transit Asset Management Targets 

Background

In its rule making for the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) and the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST), the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) continues to advance efforts to implement a performance-based approach to planning. The rules establish new requirements for metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs) to coordinate with transit providers, set performance targets, and integrate those performance targets, and performance plans into MPO planning documents by certain dates. 

In its final rulemaking on Transit Asset Management (TAM), the FTA required transit providers to set performance targets for state of good repair related to their assets by January 1, 2017. A separate planning rule for Metropolitan, Statewide and Nonmetropolitan Transportation Planning required MPOs to establish regional performance targets for each performance measure.  In 2017, transit providers in the planning area established initial State of Good repair performance targets and CAMPO adopted performance targets for the region.

Highway Safety Performance Measures

The Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization is required by federal law through the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21), signed into law on July 6, 2012, and the Fixing America's Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, signed into law on December 4, 2015 to adopt the following five safety performance measures:

  • Number of fatalities
  • Rate of fatalities
  • Number of serious injuries
  • Rate of serious injuries
  • Number of non-motorized fatalities and non-motorized serious injuries

MPOs are required to establish performance targets for each of these measures by either:

  1. agreeing to plan and program projects so that they contribute toward the accomplishment of the State DOT Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) target or
  2. committing to a quantifiable HSIP target for the metropolitan planning area

NCDOT's 2018 Safety Targets are as follows:

  • For the 2018 Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP), the goal is to reduce total fatalities by 5.10 percent each year from 1,340.6 (2012-2016 average) to 1,207.3 (2014-2018 average) by December 31, 2018
  • For the 2018 Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP), the goal is to reduce the fatality rate by 4.75 percent each year from 1.228 (2012-2016 average) to 1.114 (2014-2018 average) by December 31, 2018
  • For the 2018 Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP), the goal is to reduce total serious injuries by 5.10 percent each year from 2,399.8 (2012-2016 average) to 2,161.2 (2014-2018 average) by December 31, 2018
  • For the 2018 Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP), the goal is to reduce the serious injury rate by 4.75 percent each year from 2.191 (2012-2016 average) to 1.988 (2014-2018 average) by December 31, 2018
  • For the 2018 Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP), the goal is to reduce the total non-motorized fatalities and serious injuries by 5.30 percent each year from 438.8 (2012-2016 average) to 393.5 (2014-2018 average) by December 31, 2018

The CAMPO Executive Board approved the above targets at their meeting on February 21, 2018.
