The Federal Transit Administration is seeking public comment on how to change the way major transit project proposals seeking federal funding are rated and evaluated.  Please join us at this outreach session discussing the recently published Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) in the Federal Register dated Thursday, June 3, 2010.

We are “seeking ideas that will improve our current rating and evaluation process to ensure we invest wisely in public transportation infrastructure projects of national importance,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. “We must fairly evaluate all advantages that a transit project may offer, including economic development opportunities and environmental benefits.”

According to FTA Administrator Peter Rogoff, “major transit improvements are at the center of President Obama’s goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, lower oil consumption, and improve our quality of life.  The Administration is developing criteria that will appropriately measure all of the benefits these projects bring to their communities.  We need the public’s input to help get it done.”
