Transportation Performance Management

The Federal Highways Administration, New Mexico Department of Transportation, and the Santa Fe MPO define Transportation Performance Management (TPM) as a strategic approach that uses system information to make investment and policy decisions to achieve national performance goals. In short, Transportation Performance Management:

  • Is systematically applied, a regular ongoing process.
  • Provides key information to help decision makers allowing them to understand the consequences of investment decisions across transportation assets or modes.
  • Improving communications between decision makers, stakeholders and the traveling public.
  • Ensuring targets and measures are developed in cooperative partnerships and based on data and objective information.


Safety Performance Management

Safety Performance Management (Safety PM) is part of the overall Transportation Performance Management (TPM) program.

The Safety PM Final Rule establishes five performance measures as the five-year rolling averages to include:

  1. Number of Fatalities
  2. Rate of Fatalities per 100 million Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT)
  3. Number of Serious Injuries
  4. Rate of Serious Injuries per 100 million VMT
  5. Number of Non-motorized Fatalities and Non-motorized Serious Injuries

The Safety PM Final Rule also establishes the process for State Departments of Transportation (DOTs) and Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) to establish and report their safety targets, and the process that FHWA will use to assess whether State DOTs have met or made significant progress toward meeting their safety targets. The Santa Fe MPO’s annual Safety Performance Targets are below:
