Rural Performance Based Planning Guidebook

Performance-based transportation planning has existed for many years. Recently, it is becoming more accepted and practiced as a result of federal rules. It is fast becoming the cornerstone for transportation decision making throughout the country in both metropolitan and non-metropolitan (rural) areas. Establishing a common set of performance measures allows for the evaluation and comparison of different projects and transportation corridors for both current and future conditions, and translates data and statistics into a form that the public and decision makers can easily understand. This guidebook directs the reader through the framework for conducting a rural transportation system assessment based on individual goals and objectives and selected performance measures and weights. The planning tool developed as part of this project is intended for use with the guidebook for establishing and using rural performance-based transportation system assessment, monitoring, planning, and programming consistent with statewide plans and programs.
