UMTA PRIVATE FINANCING FOR TRANSIT CONSTRUCTION. INFORMATION ON DEMONSTRATION GRANTS

This Private Financing for Transit Contruction folder is a Demonstration Announcement for the innovative financing of transit projects. UMTA encourages public/private partnerships in the development of transit projects using little, or no, federal funds for capital expenditures. UMTA will fund demonstration studies that examine the institutional relationships that exist or must be created to develop and execute these projects which will include front-end studies and feasibility analyses necessary as part of the local/private decisionmaking process to undertake a project. This folder presents information on demonstration grants which include 4 concepts for the financing of value demonstrations. The objective is to show that a private/local/federal partnership can exist in a meaningful way to develop the following: a large transit infrastructure project or a small transit infrastructure project with no federal funding; a large transit infrastructure project with minimal federal funds; and a guided busway system project with minimal federal funds.
