The Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) required the FTA to develop rules to establish a system to monitor and manage public transportation assets to improve safety and increase reliability and performance, and to establish performance measures. The Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act reaffirmed this requirement. On July 26, 2016, FTA published the Transit Asset Management (TAM) Final Rule.
This webinar discussed the TAM Final Rule as it pertains to Transit Agencies throughout Florida and how the Florida Department of Transportation Central Transit Office plans to move forward in coordination with its local partners to meet these specific requirements in evaluating asset conditions, establishing initial targets for the January 1, 2017 deadline and reporting these conditions and targets in the National Transit Database (NTD).
