ITD seeks public comments on public transportation measures

ITD’s Division of Transportation Performance is developing Statewide Performance Measures for sub-recipient public transportation providers in the state of Idaho. The purpose of these measures is to provide a statewide snapshot of all providers that receive federal fundingthrough the division.

The proposed measures have been reviewed by ITD staff, the Community Transportation Association of Idaho, and sub-recipient public transportation providers. ITD is providing a 30-day public comment period with hopes of receiving feedback on the measures.

ITD welcomes public input on issues affecting mobility in Idaho. The comment period gives the public an opportunity to identify issues within the document that are missing, incorrect, or are unclear as written.

The department considers the public comment period as an opportunity to listen and consider, but not to respond. Comments regarding the statewide performance measures will be considered by the authors, and changes or responses to the comments will be reflected in the final version of the documents.

Final versions of the Statewide Performance Measures will be published on Statewide Performance Measures: collected and reported as a statewide aggregate:

  • Federal Operating Subsidy per Trip: The amount of federal dollars given to sub-recipients through ITD-DTP per trip which is defined as a single boarding.
  • Total Statewide Trips: Defined as a single boarding
  • Gallons of Fuel per Trip: Total gallons of fuel used by sub-recipients per single boarding
  • Vehicle Revenue Miles per Trip: Amount of miles that a sub-recipients vehicle is operating in a capacity to carry passengers• Roadside Assistance Calls per 100,000 Vehicle Revenue Miles Statewide: Number of occurrences of a sub-recipient vehicle breaking down and requiring service, while operating in Vehicle; Revenue Mile status.
  • Administrative Cost as a percentage of the Total Budget: Total Administrative cost submitted by sub-recipients in their application as a percentage of the total budget submitted.
