These projects must utilize public-private partnerships, be operated and maintained by employees of an existing public transportation provider, and have a Federal share not exceeding 25 percent of the project cost. The FAST Act specifies that not more than eight projects can be awarded grants under the EPD Pilot Program. FTA may award additional funds if they are made available to the EPD Pilot Program.
