Transit Land Use and Financial Assessments

Under this project, the Volpe Center will conduct land use and financial assessment activities, as well as National Environmental Policy Act (NEP A) related environmental reviews for projects seeking Section 5309 New Starts funding. The land use assessment activity includes a review of transit supportive land use planning and zoning laws in the region. The financial assessments will review the financial condition and capacity of transit agencies considering new fixed guideway investments. This activity will focus on the strength of the transit agency's capital financial plans, stability and reliability of financial resources, as well as the transit agency's ability to marshal the resources necessary to undertake a major capital improvement project, while maintaining existing transit services and operations. This project provides oversight support to assist the Office of Planning in determining whether New Starts transit projects are eligible for the New Starts funding.
