Federal Transit Program: Federal Transit Administration Has Opportunities to Improve Performance Accountability
DIANE Publishing, May 1, 2011 - 46 pages
Public demand and federal funding for transit have grown in recent years, yet most of this funding is not tied to performance. As Congress prepares for reauthorization of the federal surface transportation programs, this report examined: (1) the extent to which federal transit programs use performance information in making decisions about funding distribution and in evaluating the programs' effectiveness; (2) mechanisms for making these programs more performance based, and strategies for supporting their successful implementation; and (3) how selected U.S. and foreign transit agencies have used performance measurement in their planning and decisions, and their views on the federal role in transit. Charts and tables. This is a print on demand report.
