Analysis of Florida Department of Transportation Transit Corridor Program/Projects – Tech Memorandum #3 – Recommendations

(Center Identification Number: 392-01 part 3) 

The purpose of this project is to review and summarize the performance of transit corridor projects funded by the FDOT during the time period from July 1, 1993 through December 31, 1999. Through surveys and interviews, CUTR will summarize the strengths and weaknesses of the individual projects. The lessons learned from the implementation of these projects will be shared with other transit systems within the State of Florida.

In Task 1 of this project, CUTR analyzed and summarized all Joint Participation Agreements (JPAs) for the Transit Corridor Program from July 1, 1993 through December 31, 1999. Transit corridor projects which are currently underway were summarized in detail using the available progress report data. Those projects which started in FY 1999, that did not have progress reports available at the time the data collection activities were conducted, were summarized as to project scope, goals and budget. Where critical reporting and/or data were lacking, CUTR interviewed FDOT and transit agency personnel to gather the required information. Technical Memorandum Number 1 presented this information.

Task 2 built on Task 1 with an emphasis on identifying the level of success of the Transit Corridor projects. This information is summarized in Technical Memorandum Number 2 below in a “lessons learned” manner to share with the State of Florida transit industry. It is intended that the results of this analysis may also be presented at FTA annual and midyear conferences.

Finally, in Task 3 CUTR will interview involved FDOT personnel at both the Central Office and District Offices and agency personnel to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the overall Transit Corridor Program, including the results of specific projects, as well as the FDOT procedures for project development, monitoring, project prioritization and funding. From these efforts recommendations may be made to aid in improving the Transit Corridor Program procedures and monitoring processes. Technical Memorandum Number Three documents these findings and recommendations. Download the final report.
