CAPTool User Guide: Using CAPTool to Implement the “Costing Asset Protection: An All-Hazards Guide for Transportation Agencies (CAPTA)” Methodology

The Costing Asset Protection for Transportation Agencies (CAPTA) methodology is an approach that agencies can use to analyze threats and hazards relevant to critical multimodal transportation infrastructure assets. Transportation agencies are constantly faced with events like crashes, extreme weather, vandalism, and criminal activities. CAPTA gives agencies a capital planning and budgeting tool to use as a strategic point of departure for informing resource allocation decisions. The purpose of this guide is to help agencies: (1) become familiar with CAPTA Methodology; (2) learn how to use CAPTool to implement the CAPTA Methodology; (3) understand CAPTool results, and how to use those results in capital budget and decision making; and (4) acquire more detailed information about CAPTA and other analysis tools and planning methodologies that enhance asset safety and security.
