    • January 28, 2010 – President Obama announces HSIPR round 1 selections

    • Focus of Investments:

      • Building new high-speed rail corridors

      • Substantial upgrades to emerging HSR

      • Improvements to existing services

      • Planning studies laying groundwork

    5

    Hsipr round 1 grant agreements

    HSIPR round 1 grant agreements

    • Top priority for FRA & States – Round 1 grant obligation

    • States and FRA focused on completing award prerequisites:

      • SOWs

      • Agreements

      • Engineering and environmental analyses

      • Financial plan and project management plan

    • FRA is available to help with roadblocks – work with customer leads

    *Figure will fluctuate as budgets are defined for specific projects within corridor programs.

    Critical success factor railroad stakeholder agreements

    Critical success factor: Railroad stakeholder agreements

    Enforceable service outcomes agreements essential

    1

    • 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
