Foreword

This report is submitted pursuant to Title 49, United States Code (U.S.C.), 5309(o)(1), which requires the Secretary of Transportation to submit to the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure of the United States House of Representatives and the Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs of the United States Senate, a report that includes a proposal on the allocation of amounts to be made available to finance grants and loans for capital projects for new fixed guideway systems and extensions to existing fixed guideway systems (“New Starts”) among applicants for those funds. In addition, the report is also formally submitted to the Appropriations Committees of both the House and the Senate. It is also provided to transit operators, metropolitan planning organizations, and State departments of transportation, and is made available to the public at large.

The report is a companion document to the President’s annual budget request to Congress. It provides the Administration’s recommendations for allocating New Starts capital investment funding for Federal Fiscal Year 2005.

The report is organized into two sections: the main body of the report, which specifies funding recommendations by project and provides background information both on the projects and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) program and processes; and a series of appendices that provide more detailed information on each proposed project. Appendix A includes those proposed projects in preliminary engineering, final design, or construction, and includes a complete profile (with map, where available) for each project. Appendix B briefly describes each project that is currently in alternatives analysis.

During the clearance of this report within the Department of Transportation, Congress enacted H.R. 2673, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2004. References in this report to the FY 2004 Conference Report are now the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2004. Upon request, this report will be made available in alternative formats. It is also available via the Internet at the FTA site on the World Wide Web; the address is http://www.fta.dot.gov/.
