Improve return on investment & recognize good performance
Taxpayers – both individuals and businesses – expect their investment to deliver a system that is as efficient, convenient, affordable and safe as possible. MAP-21 began implementing a framework for incentivizing good performance. To fulfill this vision, the next bill should:
Build on MAP-21 by measuring a full range of outcomes from our transportation investments, including efficiently moving goods to market and workers to jobs;
Strengthen MAP-21’s framework so that results on performance inform the selection of projects, and that sufficient funding is targeted to areas where progress falls short; and
Expand assistance to local communities to ensure they have the capacity to plan projects so that they benefit all users and deliver the greatest possible return.
