PROPOSED CRITERIA FOR THE URBAN MASS TRANSPORTATION CAPITAL GRANTS PROGRAM

THIS REPORT IS PRIMARILY CONCERNED WITH THE DEVELOPMENT AND APPLICATION OF CRITERIA IN APPROVING, DISAPPROVING, OR DEFERRING CAPITAL GRANT PROJECT APPLICATIONS. SHORT-TERM CRITERIA FOR IMMEDIATE APPLICATION WILL BE AMMENDED AND EXPANDED WITHIN THE NEXT FEW YEARS: FEW OF THEM WILL BE DROPPED OR REPLACED BY OTHER CRITERIA. INTERMEDIATE AND LONG-RUN CRITERIA (ADDITIONAL OR EXPANDED CRITERIA TO BE DEVELOPED AND IMPLEMENTED OVER THE NEXT FIVE TO FIFTEEN YEARS) ARE DISCUSSED FROM THE STANDPOINT OF PROBABLE IMPORTANCE TO UMTA IN PROJECT SELECTION OR PROGRAM ADMINISTRATION, RATHER THAN IN THE SENSE OF FIRM RECOMMENDATIONS FOR ADOPTION. THE AUTHOR NOTES THAT IMPLICIT IN SUCH A TIME FRAME IS THE CAPABILITY AND NEED FOR INTRODUCING SELF-CORRECTING PROGRAM MEASURES AND POLICIES, AND THAT UMTA, BECAUSE OF THE POTENTIAL IMPACT OF ITS PROGRAM ON THE URBAN SCENE, SHOULD BE AMONG THE FIRST INITIATORS. /UMTA/
