Performance Measurement, Agency Goals & Objectives    

August 16, 2022. 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Audience: Anyone working on planning and implementation of a transit project

This high-level workshop supports FTA grantees and other practitioners in developing performance measures to support achievement of public transportation, mobility management, and transportation coordination goals. The workshop will also discuss the development of non-traditional performance measures for public transportation in urban and rural markets. The training covers performance measure fundamentals, approaches, and applications, including collecting and analyzing data needed to implement performance monitoring. Attendees are provided with information and tools necessary to aid in the development of measures relevant to their respective efforts, whether at the statewide, regional, or project-specific levels. 

Additionally, the training includes information on communicating the value of public transportation, mobility management, and regional coordination through performance measurement. In a time of constrained resources, coupled with clear mobility needs, transportation providers and mobility managers need to be able to demonstrate the value of transportation services. It is important for agency representatives to understand how to better communicate the value of transportation services to elected officials, stakeholders, and the public. Agencies will also learn how to use the information and feedback to create customer-driven transportation services. The target audience for this training includes mobility managers, regional transportation coordination leaders, transit managers, directors, board members, transit planners, and agency decision-makers. 

At the completion of the training, participants will be able to:

·       Describe performance measure terminology and concepts.

·       List the steps involved in developing measures.

·       Create performance measures tailored to their agency.
