Performance Based Planning and Programming (PBPP)

Transportation Performance Management Framework

The implementation of the federal performance based-planning and programming (PBPP) requirements is done within the Transportation Performance Management (TPM) framework. TPM provides key system information to determine the progress towards achieving goals and objectives and prioritizes investment and policy decisions. TPM also gives transportation agencies a better ability to identify and mitigate issues within their respective transportation networks and improve communication between partner agencies through data and objective information.
The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) established a set of rulemakings for implementation of PBPP. Each rulemaking pertains to a particular area of transportation, and lays out the goals, measures, and data to be used in setting targets. Under the PBPP process, states, transit providers, and MPOs must link investment priorities to the achievement of performance targets. Click each link below to learn more:
