The FHWA states, "This Guidebook informs State departments of transportation (DOTs), metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs), and regional transportation planning organizations (RTPOs), as well as their planning partners such as transit agencies, local governments, and Federal agencies, about effective practices for incorporating performance-based planning into the development of a long range transportation plan. A performance-based plan sets the foundation of goals, objectives, performance measures, and targets that support decisions for long-range investments and policies, and guides programming, as well as shorter-range decisions that move toward achievement of desired system performance outcomes."
