Federal transportation law requires OTO to set performance targets in 7 areas. This pertains to the Safety and Transit Asset Management targets. OTO is proposing to support the MoDOT targets:
|Performance Measure (5-Year Rolling Average)||Statewide Target for CY2018|
|Number of Fatalities||857.7|
|Fatality Rate per 100 Million VMT||1.163|
|Number of Serious Injuries||4,559.3|
|Serious Injury Rate per 100 Million VMT||6.191|
|Number of Non-Motorized Fatalities and Serious Injuries||431.9|
Transit Asset Management Targets
|MoDOT FY 2019 Targets|
|Equipment: Non-revenue support-service and maintenance vehicles (exceeding $50k at purchase)||N/A|
|Automobiles, Minivans, Vans||8 Years Useful Life||45%|
|Cutaways||10 Years Useful Life||45%|
|Buses||14 Years Useful Life||45%|
|Administrative, Passenger Stations (buildings), and Parking Facilities||30% with a condition rating below 3.0 on FTA’s TERM Scale|
|Maintenance Facilities||25% with a condition rating below 3.0 on FTA’s TERM Scale|
|Only rail fixed-guideway, track, signals and systems||N/A|
Two targets are not applicable as no participating entity has support or maintenance vehicles that exceeded $50,000 at purchase nor are there any rail fixed-guideway systems in the state plan.
|FTA TERM RATING SCALE|
|5||Excellent||No visible defects, new or near new condition, may still be under warranty if applicable|
|4||Good||Good condition, but no longer new, may be slightly defective or deteriorated, but is overall functional|
|3||Adequate||Moderately deteriorated or defective, but has not exceeded useful life|
|2||Marginal||Defective or deteriorated in need of replacement, exceeded useful life|
|1||Poor||Critically damaged or in need of immediate repair, well past useful life|
