  • Abstract:
    The explanatory statement accompanying the fiscal year 2009 Omnibus appropriation’s

    act1 directed the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) to submit a transit facility green

    building action plan to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations.2 As

    directed, this plan includes an analysis of green rating systems that would be suitable for

    transit projects; an overview of certified green building transit projects; an inventory of

    relevant assistance that could be provided to transit agencies; and planned FTA actions,

    timelines and resources to encourage green building in FTA programs.

    Green buildings make efficient and effective use of resources – energy, water, raw materials,

    and land – and provide a healthy environment for working, learning and living. By applying

    green building practices to new construction and refurbishment of existing facilities, transit

    agencies can conserve resources through lower construction, operations, and maintenance

    expenditures.
