Eliminate Capital Investment Grants for Transit Systems
CBO periodically issues a compendium of policy options (called Options for Reducing the Deficit) covering a broad range of issues, as well as separate reports that include options for changing federal tax and spending policies in particular areas. This option appears in one of those publications. The options are derived from many sources and reflect a range of possibilities. For each option, CBO presents an estimate of its effects on the budget but makes no recommendations. Inclusion or exclusion of any particular option does not imply an endorsement or rejection by CBO.

Note: This option would take effect in October 2015. Estimates are relative to CBO’s August 2014 baseline projections.
This option would eliminate the Capital Investment Grants program, which awards grants on a competitive basis to public transit systems (rail systems, bus systems that use exclusive or controlled rights-of-way, and ferries).
