Performance-Based Planning and Programming Guidebook

Performance-based planning and programming (PBPP) refers to the application of performance management principles
within the planning and programming processes of transportation agencies to achieve desired performance outcomes for
the multimodal transportation system. The Guidebook has been designed to help State DOTs, MPOs, RTPOs, transit
agencies, and other partner organizations understand: the key elements of a PBPP process and the relationship of these
elements within existing planning and programming processes. The Guidebook is designed to highlight effective
practices to help transportation agencies in moving toward a performance-based approach to planning and programming.
