Before and After Studies of New Starts Projects

Federal law requires sponsors of transit projects receiving major capital project funding from FTA to produce a Before-and-After Study that assesses the impact of the project after it is built. In the study, the project sponsor compares predicted versus actual construction costs, service levels, project scope and ridership after project has opened. These studies inform FTA’s decisions on future proposed projects and contribute to the likelihood that major capital projects will start on time, finish on budget and meet ridership goals.
