MAP 21 Establishes Performance-based planning process MAP-21 requires Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) and States to establish performance targets that address national performance measures issued by the U.S. DOT and are based on goals outlined in law Safety, infrastructure condition, congestion reduction, system reliability, economic vitality, environmental sustainability, reduced project delivery delays, transit safety, and transit asset management Transportation Improvement Programs (TIPs) must include a description of the anticipated progress toward achieving the targets brought about by implementing the TIP.

16

State Safety Oversight MAP-21 includes new requirements for the State Safety Oversight (SSO) program, through which States with heavy rail, light rail, and streetcar systems must establish safety oversight for these transit systems. MAP-21 requires State Safety Oversight Agencies (SSOAs) to be legally and financially independent from the rail systems they oversee, and have the authority, staff training, and expertise to enforce Federal and State safety laws. FTA must certify whether each SSO is adequate and meets the requirements. FTA will oversee implementation of the SSO programs and audit each SSO agency at least triennially. The law also directs FTA to distribute funding via formula to support State safety oversight work A 20 percent local match is required for these funds
