Curbed has an article about the new proposed budget and the damage it will do to municipal transit projects across the country. If Trump and Congress have their way, I guess we can probably kiss any hope of the Purple Line to Westwood by 2024 goodbye.

Quote:
The proposed Transportation Department budget of $16.2 billion—a 13 percent cut—would impact a host of programs that benefit both urban and rural communities. Such programs have been championed by mayors and city planners across the country, from Seattle to Orlando to expand rail and bicycle networks and create pedestrian-friendly streetscapes.

The New Starts program, which helps fund local transportation projects costing over $300 million (a sister program, Small Starts, assists with projects under that threshold), would be frozen. New applications to the program, which currently has $2.3 billion to spend annually through 2020, would be outright rejected, limiting any new grants and placing the onus on local and state government to fund additional projects. (Existing, in-process projects would still be able to draw from available funds.)

As noted by Streetsblog (“Trump’s Budget Takes an Axe to Transit”), New Start only makes up five percent of federal surface-transportation spending; the bulk of the budget, which provides grants to state transportation departments for roads and highways, won’t be affected. However, the New Starts program has been critical for mass transit expansion in cities across the country; the 2017 budget includes funding for light rail extensions in Boston, Charlotte, Portland, and Los Angeles, among others.

Streetblog writer Yonah Freemark compiled current applications for funding and found that dozens of cities and municipalities had been angling for New Start grant money for new transportation projects.



The new budget would also seek a half-billion reduction in TIGER grants, the economic recovery infrastructure program launched by President Obama in 2009. To date, the TIGER program has provided $5.1 billion for more than 400 road, rail, port, and transit projects. In 2016 alone, grants were awarded to programs of all sizes, all across the country: a complete streets upgrade in Broward, Florida; bus rapid transit expansion in Oakland, California; upgrades and improvements to Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive in Atlanta, Georgia; and new bike lanes in Cleveland, Ohio.

These transportation cuts square with the policy proposals in the 2016 Republican party platform, which suggested phasing out and eventually cutting all federal funds for transit, walking, and biking programs in favor of highway and roadway funding.

As NACTO, the National Association of City Transportation Officials, noted in a statement about the budget draft today, which they said was a “disaster for cities and their transportation systems,” the cuts to the Department of Transportation, “while hitting critical programs, do not ultimately add up to even half of the touted $2.4 billion, 13 percent reduction. As the overall proposed budget for this agency is already lean, it is concerning that other anticipated cuts were not specified in the summary.”
