This guide describes what Transit Asset Management (TAM) means for small transit providers and provides insight for developing TAM plans to improve the management of transit assets while meeting the Federal requirements set forth in Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) and subsequent FTA rulemaking. This guide is not intended to be a step-by-step guide but rather provides guidance for good practice asset management based on a review of industry standards and practices. The guide provides an introduction on TAM and TAM plans for small providers as well as a link to a menu-driven master template to assist in developing MAP-21 compliant TAM plans.
