The apparent increase in light rail transit capital costs is a
significant concern for Federal Transit Administration, as
well as for its partner agencies at the state and local levels.

unexpectedly high project costs and could use assistance in
both bringing these costs under control and gaining tools to
better anticipate ultimate project costs.
