“FTA’s Transit Asset Management (TAM) Program is launching a Peer Program with a Forum on TAM Investment Scenarios to be held 2:00-3:30 p.m. EDT September 29, 2022. The forum will allow staff members from transit agencies to meet virtually and work collaboratively to address ways to exceed the requirements in the TAM Rule (49 CFR 625). These forums promote peer-to-peer education, the distribution of peer-designed resources, and collaboration regarding best practices. Discussion forums are limited to no more than 10 participants, but FTA will share the outcomes of each forum with case studies and/or presentations.”
