Earlier, in September 2015, the
Federal Transit Administration (FTA) issued the Notice of Proposed
Rulemaking (NPRM) for transit asset management (TAM), which proposed the
establishment of a National Transit Asset Management System to monitor
and manage public transportation capital assets to achieve and maintain a
state of good repair (SGR), and improve safety, reliability and
performance. It proposed amendments to the National Transit Database
regulations to conform to the proposed reporting requirements for TAM.
The Fourth Transit State of Good Repair conference is being held on March 7 and 8, 2016 at the Willard InterContinental, Washington, DC.
The mission of the conference is to
explore the TAM and SGR implications of the new legislation and to
develop an understanding of the lessons learned and best practices in
implementing the FTA TAM Rule, which requires the delivery of TAM plans,
an analysis of SGR performance targets and asset data reporting to the
National Asset Management System. The speakers will include
policymakers, transit agencies and operators, technology providers,
specialist consultants, transit-related associations, and financiers
such as private equity firms and banks.
What are the funding provisions and TAM requirements under the FAST Act that are relevant to SGR?
What are some of the lessons learned and the best practices in implementing the FTA TAM Rule?
What issues are being
experienced in the development, management and implementation of SGR
programs and projects in large, medium and small transit agencies?
How can the Systems
Engineering Approach be utilized to achieve the SGR goals and the data
reporting requirements of the National Transit Asset Management System?
How can contemporary asset
management upgrades be implemented with system-wide applications such as
Communication Based Train Control (CBTC) (subway) and Positive Train
Control (PTC) (surface rail)?
How can technology be
leveraged to improve system effectiveness and gain efficiency through
open fare collection systems, data analytics and forecasting systems,
and the associated wireless communication infrastructure?
How can the performance of capital assets be improved and measured?
What role can
transit-oriented development, value capture and other innovative
financing methods like TIFIA loans and guarantees and TIGER Grants play
in SGR projects and programs?
