What are the benefits of performance measurement?
Just ask any parent on the day report cards come out. Seeing how well an expectation is met can be a great source of satisfaction, or if the results fall short, can point to where improvements are needed. Federal rules now require performance measures as a check and balance that proposed transportation plans and projects are helping to reach goals established by the community.
The Hillsborough MPO has documented the performance of the transportation system for a number of challenging goals, even going beyond those identified nationally. The performance areas include:
- Preserve the system
- Reduce crashes & vulnerability
- Minimize traffic for drivers & shippers
- Real choices when not driving
- Major investments for economic growth
The plan is to continue to evaluate and adjust, track trends, and make progress toward a safer, more efficient, transportation system.
