Transit Performance Monitoring System

This project is an amendment to a previous research project that developed and tested the Transit Performance Monitoring System (TPMS), a survey method used to measure the performance of transit in serving three principal public policy roles-basic mobility, transit-oriented development/livable communities, and traffic congestion management. Under this amendment, the American Public Transportation Association (APT A) will encourage transit systems to voluntarily and routinely collect and report TPMS data. A working group of representatives from the APT A Policy and Planning and Marketing Committees, will review and expand the core questions that were used in two previous TPMS surveys. APT A will also develop an outreach program to extend participation to a larger group of transit operators (comprised of systems that participated in previous surveys as well as new participants).
