DOT/FTA RIN: 2132-AB34 Publication ID: Fall 2017 
Title: ●Capital Leases 

49 CFR part 639 contains the requirements to qualify for capital assistance when leasing facilities or equipment under Federal transit laws. Recently, in section 3002 of the Fixing America's Surface Transportation Act (Pub. L. 114-357), the underlying statute for this regulation was revised. The revision changed the definition of capital project so that a recipient is no longer required to conduct a cost-effectiveness analysis before leasing public transportation equipment or facilities with Federal funds. In addition, the statute exempts rolling stock procurements from the requirements of 49 CFR part 639. For this reason, FTA plans to issue a final rule to rescind these requirements.
