  • Immediate outcomes from grant – consistent and measurable:
    • Specified operating slots (by number and time of day)
    • Scheduled trip times
    • Reliabilitymetrics (delay-minutes reduction)
  • Where project results in new capacity, futureslots must be protected
  • By statute, service outcomes from grant must be enforceable
  • Agreements may be structured either as:
    • Trilateral agreement – State, host, and operator (preferred)
    • 3 synchronized bilateral agreements

passenger rail program development challenges
Passenger rail program development challenges
  • How do we rebuild expertise and capacity to execute program?
  • How do we ensure development of a robust domestic industry?
  • How do we plan, develop and operate across multi-state corridors?
  • How do we effectively build public partnerships with private railroads?
  • How do we build public support for sustainable program funding?

12

key to success collaboration
Key to success: Collaboration

Partnership starts with FRA and State DOTs

Round 1 grants – work together to manage risk and deliver

Future rounds – honest assessment of readiness and technical capacity

Building public support – common message and early successes

Sustainable program – reauthorization
