Abstract The Federal Transit Administration's (FTA) International Program plays a vital role in providing the international outreach necessary to support America's movement toward a new public transportation future for the 21st century. Authorized by the June 1998 Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21), the FTA International Public Transportation Program (IPTP) helps the U.S. transit industry access international markets and furthers the improvement of U.S. transit by highlighting international innovations. The IPTP supports the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) strategic international goals of promoting international access and involvement for U.S. transportation industries, sharing data and technology, promoting harmonization of transportation standards, and providing technical assistance. The premier goal of the IPTP is to make the U.S. transit industry more globally competitive. Determined by the current needs of the transit industry both in the U.S. and abroad, the priorities of the nation and the Administration, new developments in technology, and the FTA and U.S. DOT strategic goals, the activities of the program are supported by four strategic areas: Trade Promotion, Technology Transfer, Human Capacity Building, and International Accessibility Outreach.
