TAM: Transit Asset Management

Transit Asset Management

The Transit Asset Management (TAM) final rule was published on July 26, 2016 with an effective date of October 1, 2016. This final rule establishes state of good repair standards and four state of good repair performance measures:

  • Rolling Stock: The percentage of revenue vehicles (by type) that exceed the useful life benchmark (ULB).
  • Equipment: The percentage of non-revenue service vehicles (by type) that exceed the ULB.
  • Facilities: The percentage of facilities (by group) that are rated less than 3.0 on the Transit Economic Requirements Model (TERM) Scale.
  • Infrastructure: The percentage of track segments (by mode) that have performance restrictions. Track segments are measured to the nearest 0.01 of a mile.

As similarly required in the Safety PM for the target setting process, to the extent practicable, transit providers must coordinate with the MPO in the selection of TAM performance targets.
