This document presents selected results of GAOís Web-based survey of
215 project sponsors to obtain information on the Federal Transit
Administrationís (FTA) funding of transit projects nationwide. The
questions in our survey were posed to obtain information on project
sponsorsí completed, ongoing, and planned transit projects and also
their experiences with the New Starts and Small Starts programs.
The survey was e-mailed to projects sponsors (including transit agencies,
city transportation offices, and metropolitan planning organizations,
among others) in urbanized areas with populations of over 200,000 and
that have an annual ridership on their transit systems of over 1 million.
Of the 215 project sponsors, 168 project sponsors responded to the survey,
for a survey response rate of 78 percent. We do not include responses for all survey questions.
Specifically, this document does not include narrative responses that we received.
