Transit projects in the United States suffer from high costs and take longer to complete than they do abroad. After conducting 117 interviews with key stakeholders, this report finds that institutional structure and decision-making, procurement specifications, utility relocation, land acquisition, and environmental review are some of the many factors that influence a project's budget and timeline. It also provides policy recommendations to improve the efficiency of these projects.
