P3s: The Opportunities and Implications of Working with Private Partners and the U.S. DOT to Deliver Transit Capital Projects
On April 3, 2022, Yukiko Kojima spoke on a panel, “P3s: The Opportunities and Implications of Working with Private Partners and the U.S. DOT to Deliver Transit Capital Projects,” during the American Public Transportation Association’s (APTA) 2022 Legal Affairs Seminar in Boston, MA.
Yukiko and her fellow panelists explored rising opportunities for public-private partnership (P3) grant funding under the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) and the favorable funding available from the Build America Bureau. The panel discussed the tradeoffs of using federal funding and property with a federal interest in P3 projects, typical phasing of P3 projects, practical issues legal counsel must be prepared to address and lessons learned from three case studies from Florida, Maryland and California.
