Federal Policy Update: FTA to Hold Webinars on New Starts and Small Starts Rule and Policy Guidance

The Federal Transit Administration will hold three public webinars to discuss the New Starts final rule published on Jan. 9 in the Federal Register and the accompanying proposed policy guidance, available on the website here. Comments on the proposed guidance are due March 11.

Each webinar will cover the same materials, allowing you to choose the day and time that works best for you. Each webinar is limited to 200 participants, so these are offered on a first-come, first-served basis (no RSVP required). Time will be allotted for Q&A, with questions submitted online for selective discussion. An audio of the webinar and accompanying slides will be available online at after the last webinar has concluded.
