Federal law requires MTC to set performance targets for the nine-county Bay Area that support national transportation goals such as reducing traffic fatalities and improving highway infrastructure.
The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has established requirements for performance management to ensure the most efficient investment of Federal transportation funds, support improved investment decision-making, increase accountability and transparency, and establish performance-based planning and programming.
As the region’s metropolitan planning organization, MTC is responsible for setting short-range performance targets to comply with federal law and support national transportation goals such as reducing traffic fatalities and improving highway infrastructure.
This page will function as a "hub" for the federal performance targets and performance monitoring project as MTC works to address following federal goal areas:
- Infrastructure Condition
- System Reliability
- Freight Movement and Economic Vitality
- Congestion Reduction
- Environmental Sustainability
Detailed performance monitoring data and analysis of the 28 required federal transportation performance measures will be rolled out over the course of 2018 on the Vital Signs website.
