HINDRANCES TO COORDINATING TRANSPORTATION OF PEOPLE PARTICIPATING IN FEDERALLY FUNDED GRANT PROGRAMS. VOLUME I
GAO identified 114 Federal programs that provide financial assistance for the transportation of people. GAO did not identify any express statutory or regulatory restrictions that specifically prohibit coordination of transportation resources of these programs but did identify a number of hindrances to coordination. The most significant hindrance appears to be confusion at all government levels about the extent of transportation coordination federally funded projects may engage in. The Congress should reduce this confusion by endorsing transportation coordination when feasible, providing there is appropriate cost-sharing and cost and service accountability.
