In September 2013, FTA issued an Advance Notice of Proposed Rule Making (ANPRM)
for a National TAM System and received over 2,500 comments from around the transit
industry. The FTA grantees will be required to develop TAM plans based on capital
asset inventories and condition assessments, performance measurements and investment
Transit agencies will be required to establish SGR performance targets in coordination
with metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs) and state transportation agencies
and report on progress towards meeting the targets over time. Transit agencies that
measure and quantify the effects of their capital investment decisions are likely
to make a stronger case for funding. Best practices in asset management procedures
and IT systems will be necessary in the current environment.
The FY 2015 Budget requests USD13.9 billion to provide grants that support transit
capital investment, SGR, safety, planning, bus and railcar purchases and maintenance,
transit operations in small and rural areas, and agency operations. It includes
an increase of USD5.1 billion above FTA’s current funding level to support strategic
“Fix-it-First” investments and an increase of USD3.6 billion for SGR.
The conference aims to provide a common platform for transit
agencies with varying levels of asset management practices to learn about FTA’s
support initiatives including the results of TAM pilot projects, share experiences,
discuss challenges, and gain insight for effectively balancing competing needs of
operations, maintenance, reinvestment and system expansion.
It will provide information on implementing state of the art asset management software
and using best practices in condition assessments, performance measurement, life
cycle management and capital investment decision making. The conference will address
the concerns of small, medium and large transit agencies in optimizing resources
and utilizing funds from all sources (federal, state, local and system generated)
for making prioritized choices based on sound data and clear organization goals.
