Texas Transit Institute releases sustainability guidebook

Posted on December 5, 2011

“A Guidebook for Sustainability Performance Measurement for Transportation Agencies,” created by Texas Transportation Institute (TTI) researchers and published by the Transportation Research Board (TRB), offers state departments of transportation and other transportation agencies a series of practical, easy-to-use tools to continuously integrate sustainability into current agency performance measurement programs.

The guidebook is now available from the TRB website, www.trb.org/Main/Blurbs/166313.aspx.

Performance measurement has evolved over the decades into an effective way to quantify goals and objectives and to communicate progress toward meeting these goals. But developing these measures is often complicated.

“This guidebook should be of immediate use to those who are familiar with their own agency’s performance measurement program but need to provide useful information to agency leadership on how effectively their organization is meeting sustainability goals,” said Lori L. Sundstrom, a senior program officer with TRB.

The guidebook incorporates real-world examples from departments of transportation (DOTs) and private industry in both the U.S. and Europe.

Sustainability is discussed in the context of many primary DOT goals such as safety, reducing congestion, preserving system assets, enhancing economic opportunity and improving air quality.
