Join the Dialogue on FTA's 'XPEDITE' Planning Initiative

FTA has launched the Expedited Public Transportation Improvement Initiative (XPEDITE), an initiative designed to speed up planning, approval and delivery of its capital investments and better support innovative financing methods that support such investments.

FTA invites public transit professionals to join in the online ­dialogue through Oct. 16. This website includes a list of questions and subject areas but FTA also wants industry professionals to note areas of improvement. “No one knows the challenges faced by transit providers better than those working every day to keep America moving; share your insight with us,” FTA states on the website.

This project will enhance the public transit industry’s access to improved technologies; proven methods to speed up planning, development, approval and delivery of FTA supported capital investments; and enhanced financing methods and opportunities for public-private partnerships through “value capture that supports improved capital project delivery.”
