CMAQ Performance Measures
In order to help transportation agencies better understand TPM federal regulations and requirements, USDOT and FHWA have created the video series, "TPM Essentials." The series comprises 18 short clips; each focuses on a specific aspect of federal TPM. The entire series can be found on FHWA's website here or on Youtube here.
This video focuses on the CMAQ performance measures: annual hours of peak hour excessive delay per capita (PHED), percent of non-single occupancy vehicle (SOV) travel, and total emissions reduction. To fully explain FHWA's rationale in establishing these three measures, the video covers each of the following topics:
- The purpose of the CMAQ performance measures
- What the measures assess
- Insight into FHWA reasoning
