Transit Asset Management Events

What's New

  • FTA’s Transit Asset Management (TAM) program will host the 2024 TAM Roundtable in person on July 30-31, 2024, in Chicago, IL. The TAM Roundtable brings together participants from across the country who are directly involved in the management of transit capital assets. The event will feature two peer learning sessions that will focus on how TAM has evolved at agencies and examples of continuous improvement efforts. This meeting is an excellent opportunity for agencies to exchange best practices. The TAM Roundtable is open to public sector employees only, including transit agency staff, state DOT and Metropolitan Planning Organization staff focused on transit. Please visit the 2024 TAM Roundtable registration to request to attend the event.
     
  • FTA and its partners have held a number of events associated with the Transit Asset Management (TAM) rule. View materials from specific events below. Visit the TAM Resource Table for additional materials from past events.

Peer Learning

FTA’s peer learning opportunities bring together transit agencies and other stakeholders from around the country to discuss TAM plans and other aspects of transit asset management. Announcements for upcoming peer learning events will be sent to the TAM email distribution list and interested parties will be asked to submit a brief application to participate. Please see below for different peer offering descriptions:

  • Virtual discussion forms are standalone, virtual events for ~10 transit agency professionals to present briefly and talk about a predetermined topic. These ~90-minute sessions provide an opportunity for participants to network and collaborate on a variety of TAM topics. 
  • TAM peer working groups bring together ~15 participants from different transit agencies to engage virtually on a designated TAM topic to promote peer learning, share peer-designed resources, and collaborate on best practices. The group will meet monthly for one year, and participants will give short presentations on a rotating basis on a best practice or a current challenge at their agency. The next peer working group is expected to begin in early 2024.
  • Peer exchanges are in-person, 1.5-day events on a specific topic involving a small number of agencies and will take place onsite at one of the participating agencies. The next TAM peer exchange is expected to occur in early 2024.

Roundtables

FTA’s TAM Roundtable draws transit agency representatives focused on managing transit capital assets. The roundtable encourages participants to learn best practices from their peers.
