Final Agency Guidance.
This final Agency guidance describes the eligibility of ``joint development'' improvements under 49 U.S.C. 5301 et seq. (Federal transit law) by interpreting the definition and operation of the term ``capital project'' as defined at 49 U.S.C. 5302(a)(1)(G), and as amended by Section 3003(a) of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU). This final Agency guidance is the culmination of three notices issued by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA or Agency), the first of which appeared in the Federal Register on January 31, 2006. FTA intends to publish the text of this final Agency guidance as a stand-alone FTA Circular titled The Eligibility of Joint Development Improvements under Federal Transit Law.
