On January 12, 2021, FAA issued a final policy amendment on the eligibility of on-airport rail access projects. This PFC update amends FAA policy previously published in 2004, Notice of Policy Regarding Eligibility of Airport Ground Access Transportation Projects for Funding Under the Passenger Facility Charge Program (69 FR 6366) (the 2004 Policy), to make rail lines that do not exclusively serve the airport PFC eligible, and provides several methodologies for calculating the PFCeligible costs. The FAA will apply the 2004 Policy to all other ground access projects using PFC funds. FAA has posted PFC Update 75–21: Eligibility of on-airport rail access projects on the FAA Office of Airports website: https:// www.faa.gov/airports/pfc/pfc_updates/. Issued in Washington, DC.
