Asset Condition Assessment Methodologies

This project supports efforts to develop a framework for transit asset management. A variety of existing sources and stakeholders will be reviewed and adapted to the general institutional environment of U.S. transit agencies. The project will develop a guidance document describing essential elements of transit asset management and how they should be implemented, as well as training materials for a national-level course. The project supports development of standards for asset management planning by reviewing the state of practice of asset condition assessment methodologies and developing a framework for asset condition assessment and rating. It will provide information and guidance to transit agencies about best practice in methods for assessing the condition of transit assets to determine if they are in a State of Good Repair. It will provide an example of the contents of an acceptable transit asset management system and technical assistance tools to help transit agencies follow the model.
