The other 50 percent of the FTA New Starts rating reflects local financial commitment, which encompasses the proposed share of the project capital cost that would be funded through nonNew Starts sources, the current financial condition of the transit system, the commitment of funds for the project and transit system, and the reasonableness of the project financial plan. With respect to the FTA project development process, one of the more important changes brought about by MAP–21 was the elimination of the requirement for a standalone Alternatives Analysis that would culminate in the selection of a locally preferred alternative. The FTA will instead rely on the NEPA process for alternatives evaluation. The change will reduce redundancy in the New Starts project development process and streamline the review and selection of a locally preferred alternative. Marisol Simon, Regional Administrator.
