Conditions and Performance Report to U.S. Congress

This research project assists the FTA Policy Development Office in developing the Conditions and Performance Report to the United States Congress. The report to Congress, required every two years and produced jointly with FHWA, focuses on assessment of highway and transit current conditions and performance, and future investment requirements. It is also used to highlight the results of policy research. Research includes new data collection efforts and further development and maintenance of the Transit Economic Requirement Model (TERM). This will improve the accuracy and reliability of collected data to help measure progress toward outcome goals. This project provides for transit and highway conditions, performance, and needs to be estimated on a similar basis.
