Summary
Since the early 1970s, the federal government has provided a large share of the nation's capital investment in urban mass transportation. Much of this investment has come through the Federal Transit Administration's (FTA) new starts program, which funds up to 80 percent of major new rail and bus transit systems that use separate and exclusive rights-of-way, as well as extensions to existing systems. FTA has entered into full funding grant agreements totaling $5.1 billion for 14 new starts transit projects that are currently under construction. Approximately $3.2 billion of this $5.1 billion has already been appropriated for these projects. Expected to cost a total of $8.7 billion when the grant agreements were signed, these projects represent a substantial investment of federal, state, and local transportation funds. Because of your interest in FTA's new starts transit investments, you asked us to assess the progress and cost of these 14 projects in terms of the schedule and cost estimates in the grant agreements. As agreed with your offices, this report, which includes the information we provided your staff in May 1999, describes the status of each project, identifies those projects that have experienced changes in their baseline cost estimates, and provides information on the reasons for the changes
