Identify Practical Lessons Learned from Public-Private Partnership Initiatives in Foreign Countries

Funding is provided to the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) to modify an existing contract for the purpose of conducting a review of foreign public-private partnerships (PPPs) to identify advantages and disadvantages of PPPs for transit projects. FTA will review certain existing and new transit system PPPs implemented in other countries around the world. The contractor will prepare a detailed report describing each of the PPPs that it reviewed. The report will include descriptions of the projects, the overall governance structures of the PPPs, the partnership structures of the PPPs, significant issues that emerged during the course of the PPPs, and the factors that made the PPPs a success. The report will be an educational resource for transit agencies in the United States considering similar approaches.
