Transit Asset Management (TAM) – In July 2016, FTA published a Final Rule for Transit Asset Management. The rule requires FTA grantees to develop asset management plans for their public transportation assets, including vehicles, facilities, equipment, and other infrastructure.

Transportation bill MAP-21 mandated Federal Transit Administration (FTA) to develop a rule for managing transit assets effectively through their entire life cycle. The Transit Assets Management (TAM) final rules became effective Oct 1st 2016 and established four performance measures:
- Revenue Vehicle: The percentage of revenue vehicles (by type) that exceed the useful life benchmark (ULB)
- Non-Revenue Vehicle: 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.
MPOs are required to establish performance measure targets specific to the MPO planning area for the same performance measures for all public transit providers in the MPO planning area within 180 days of when the transit provider establishes its targets. Fresno COG established the 2018 regional transit asset management targets by leveraging the targets set by local transit providers, which are FAX and FCRTA.
