Amendment to the TIP for Inclusion of Performance Management

Within 180 days of States setting performance targets, Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs), such as KATS, are required to set performance targets in relation to the performance measures (where applicable).  To ensure consistency, each MPO must coordinate with the relevant State and public transportation providers when setting performance targets.  The MPO Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is required to include State and MPO targets.

The following document will be amended into the current TIP in support of State performance measures and targets.
