New Starts Roundtable Technical Assistance

This project provided for professional services to support the planning and hosting of the fiscal year 2001 New Starts Roundtables series. Support services included management of logistics, development of New Starts Roundtable resources, and drafting of New Starts Roundtable proceedings. For the past two years the New Starts Roundtable meetings have proven to be a successful forum for the sharing of information between FT A and grantees. Each meeting has attracted approximately 50-80 transit professionals. The Office of Planning conducts the New Starts Roundtable series to facilitate communication, discussion, and information sharing among the various parties involved in the FT A New Starts Program. This Roundtable activity enabled FT A to clarify and discuss the major issues faced by local transit agencies seeking to qualify for Section 5309 capital funding under the New Starts project development process. At the same time, the Roundtable provided a forum for local agencies to discuss their concerns and to share lessons learned and other information with members. The mission of the New Starts Roundtable includes: strengthening the partnership between FTA and local providers of public transit, providing an ongoing forum for training, information exchange, and open discussion of lessons learned, and soliciting ideas to help improve the planning and project development process for major transit capital projects
