Transportation Performance Management

The Federal Highway Administration defines Transportation Performance Management as a strategic approach that uses system information to make investment and policy decisions to achieve national performance goals.

In short, Transportation Performance Management:

  • Is systematically applied, a regular ongoing process
  • Provides key information to help decision makers to understand the consequences of investment decisions across transportation assets or modes
  • Improves communications between decision makers, stakeholders and the traveling public
  • Ensures targets and measures are developed in cooperative partnerships and based on data and objective information
