  • Slide 2
  • General Themes Seen in Reauthorization Proposals/Positions Defining a federal role in freight and goods movement given the regional benefits provided by freight corridors and the importance of interstate commerce Defining a federal role in freight and goods movement given the regional benefits provided by freight corridors and the importance of interstate commerce Linking transportation policy and funding to the environment and energy sectors given transportations contribution to greenhouse gas emissions and concerns about energy security Linking transportation policy and funding to the environment and energy sectors given transportations contribution to greenhouse gas emissions and concerns about energy security Promoting better management of existing assets through efficient use or life- cycle management strategies Promoting better management of existing assets through efficient use or life- cycle management strategies Using multiple funding sources to ensure the long-term sustainability of the programs and Using multiple funding sources to ensure the long-term sustainability of the programs and Incorporating performance and accountability into transportation programs to ensure projects that receive funding result in commensurate public benefits Incorporating performance and accountability into transportation programs to ensure projects that receive funding result in commensurate public benefits
  • Slide 3
  • Transportation Performance Measurement Several groups have recommended performance-based surface transportation programs Several groups have recommended performance-based surface transportation programs Previous DOT Administrations Transportation Infrastructure Reform Act proposal AASHTO Policy and Revenue Commission Finance Commission GAO

  • Freight Significant Highway Infrastructure Interstate System Interstate System International Land Border Crossings and approaches International Land Border Crossings and approaches Intermodal Connectors Intermodal Connectors Port Terminals Rail Terminals Air Terminals
  • Slide 5
  • What are Key Freight Performance Indicators? Point-to-point travel times on selected freight- significant highways Point-to-point travel times on selected freight- significant highways Crossing times at international borders Crossing times at international borders Condition of connectors between NHS and intermodal terminals Condition of connectors between NHS and intermodal terminals Empty miles Empty miles Cost of highway freight per hour / mile Cost of highway freight per hour / mile Cargo insurance costs Cargo insurance costs Customer satisfaction Customer satisfaction Hours of delay per Hours of delay per http://www.ops.fhwa.dot.gov/freight/freight_analysis/measure_rpt.htm
  • Slide 6
  • Background and Methodology What? oUses trucks as probes. Why? oProvides a quantifiable basis to engage public and private sector and investigate and explore causes of delay. How? oPartnership with American Transportation Research Institute, data providers, and motor carriers. Where? o25 major US interstates. oLand border crossings. 15 US/Canada crossings. 15 US/Canada crossings.
