Fixing America’s Surface Transportation ACT - January 2016

On December 4, 2015, President Obama signed into law the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act, or “FAST Act” – the first Federal law in over ten years to provide long-term funding certainty for surface transportation. Best Workplaces for Commuters and the Association for Commuter Transportation co-sponsored this webinar to summarize the provisions of the law of most interest to transportation demand management professionals and employers. Jason Pavluchuk, ACT’s government relations representative, discussed changes that create opportunities for the potential expanded role for employers to have a stronger voice in the transportation planning process. Mr. Pavluchuk summarized Congestion Mitigation Air Quality (CMAQ) Program as a Federal Highway formula program that a wide variety of TDM and employer based commuter activities are eligible for funding. He also addressed funding Surface Transportation Block Grant program which replaces the Surface Transportation Program. Finally, he noted that a new program, Advanced Transportation & Congestion Management Technologies Deployment, may have the largest, long-term affect on TDM. Under this innovation program, USDOT will annually make grants to model deployment sites for large scale installation & operation of advanced technologies to address transportation problems.
