Transit Performance Monitoring System (TPMS)

The objective of this project is to develop objective data on the role of transit in serving the needs of transit riders and communities for the Transit Performance Monitoring System (TPMS). This research project further develops the Transit Performance Monitoring System (TPMS), a method for measuring how well transit is performing three public policy roles: basic mobility, transit oriented development, and traffic congestion management. To accomplish the TPMS objectives, three major tasks will be performed: (1) Develop and promote a standard set of questions for use in onboard surveys by transit agencies participating in the TPMS, (2) Increase transit operator participation in TPMS, and (3) Manage the collection and analysis of industry data from transit systems. A Congressionally Directed Project.
