Target Setting for FAST Act Performance Measures [PDF]
The Regional Transportation Council will be asked to adopt targets for certain federally required performance measures as part of a performance-based planning process. NCTCOG staff will present performance measures and potential targets for RTC consideration.
Auto Occupancy Rewards Program for Managed Lanes [PDF]
The Regional Transportation Council's current Tolled Managed Lane Policy includes a provision for peak-period carpool discounts but requests an exploration of automated occupancy verification technology. Staff will present and seek comments on a new approach moving away from carpool discounts to a rewards program that would begin on tolled managed lanes and could be expanded throughout the region. This new approach would use a new mobile phone application to verify the number of occupants within a vehicle to determine eligibility for rewards.
Electric Vehicles Update [PDF]
Electric vehicles are a quickly increasing mode of clean transportation, with global projections predicting over 30 percent of all vehicles will be electric by 2040. Staff will provide an update on the current electric vehicle market and available incentives in the North Texas region.
