TRB Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) Web-Only Document 64: Performance Based Track Geometry Phase 2 explores a track inspection method known as performance based track geometry, and explores the potential for this method to be applied in transit to optimize maintenance and ride quality.

This report, as well as others in this TCRP project series, explores the extent to which research performed for the U.S. Federal Railroad Administration and freight railroads can be applied to benefit the transit industry.
