MAP 21 Establishes
Performance-based planning process
• MAP-21 requires Metropolitan Planning Organizations
(MPOs) and States to establish performance targets that
address national performance measures issued by the U.S.
DOT and are based on goals outlined in law
• Safety, infrastructure condition, congestion reduction,
system reliability, economic vitality, environmental
sustainability, reduced project delivery delays, transit safety,
and transit asset management
• Transportation Improvement Programs (TIPs) must include a
description of the anticipated progress toward achieving the
targets brought about by implementing the TIP.
State Safety Oversight
• MAP-21 includes new requirements for the State Safety Oversight (SSO)
program, through which States with heavy rail, light rail, and streetcar
systems must establish safety oversight for these transit systems.
• MAP-21 requires State Safety Oversight Agencies (SSOAs) to be legally
and financially independent from the rail systems they oversee, and have
the authority, staff training, and expertise to enforce Federal and State
safety laws.
•
FTA must certify whether each SSO is adequate and meets the
requirements. FTA will oversee implementation of the SSO programs and
audit each SSO agency at least triennially.
• The law also directs FTA to distribute funding via formula to support
State safety oversight work A 20 percent local match is required for
these funds
