Joint APTA and FTA Webinar:
Communicating Transit Asset Management Compliance and Programs

Thursday, April 25, 2019, 2:00 – 3:15 pm PM EST

Transit agencies were required to have completed their transit asset management plan in October 2018, and now many agencies are considering how to move forward with implementing transit asset management processes and programs. Communication is the first step of creating an asset management culture at a transit agency. Our experts discussed available FTA and APTA resources and tools for communicating the value of TAM to agency executives and staff to answer questions, such as: “Is our TAM Plan Compliant with FTA Guidelines?,”“What are we doing to refine our TAMP?,” and “The TAMP is signed, are we done now?” APTA’s Recommended Practice for Communicating Your Transit Asset Management Plan was also featured on this webinar.

Joint APTA and FTA Webinar:
How to Engage Your Transit Asset Management Stakeholders

Tuesday, October 8, 2019, 2:00 – 3:15 PM EST

Transit asset management is an iterative process that involves continuous coordination with both internal and external stakeholders. Implementing an improved approach to TAM will require effective strategies for engaging this wide range of stakeholders and can have significant benefits and improved outcomes for the agency. This webinar delved into the different approaches transit agencies are taking to communicate with external groups, such as a metropolitan planning organization (MPO), and to building a TAM culture at all levels of their agency. With FTA’s National Transit Database being published with transit asset management data for the first time this fall, our experts also provided some guidance for TAM teams to answer questions that may arise from the NTD targets. The webinar featured two APTA recommended practices, Building Internal Stakeholder Support for an Asset Management Program and Communication and Coordination with External Stakeholders for Transit Asset Management, recently published in September 2019.
