Transit Asset Management

In 2015, FTA estimated that more than 40 percent of buses and 23 percent of rail transit assets were in marginal or poor condition. Transit Asset Management (TAM) is a model that uses asset condition to help prioritize funding to achieve or maintain transit networks in a state of good repair. Estimates from the National Repair Assessment identified an $86 billion backlog in deferred maintenance and replacement needs, a backlog that continues to grow.

To keep the transit industry up to date on TAM, FTA posts information about FTA rulemaking, TAM analysis tools, State of Good Repair grants, and TAM resources. Those resources will assist industry professionals as they meet both the minimum requirements of the Transit Asset Management Rule and implement comprehensive Transit Asset Management programs and practices.
