The single unified reporting is not a viable option in the Washington DC region. Designated recipients for Section 5310 that are not currently conducting NTD reporting, such as metropolitan planning organizations, are likely to have limited resources with which to collect, validate, and submit NTD reports. From the National Capital Region Transportation Planning Board (TPB) staff perspective, the number of subrecipients in the Washington DC-VA-MD Urbanized Area is likely to be
on the order of 20 organizations. Collecting and submitting any performance measures
beyond basic requirements would require extensive follow-up and validation, and the proposed combined 5307/5310 recipient reporting option would not be viable. Our State and transit agency partners do collect basic transportation performance measures, for which they have the capacity, but they are also opposed to any expansion of these requirements.
