Title
INCREASING the life of project budget for the Blue and Green Lines Transit Passenger Information System, capital project 212010, by $3,842,533, increasing the life of project from $5,987,180 to $9,829,713 and amend the FY16 annual budget by $3,842,533.

Issue
ISSUE

Staff is requesting an increase in Life-Of-Project for Capital Project (CP) 212010-Blue & Green Lines Transit Passenger Information System (TPIS) to adopt the reprogramming of Department of Homeland Security Grant funding. By adopting this funding, it will allow staff to purchase additional equipment for the Transit Passenger Information System.

In Fiscal Year (FY) 2015, the California Transit Security Grant Program-California Transit Assistance Fund (CTSGP-CTAF) Proposition 1B authorized Metro to reprogram available grant funding from completed capital projects to CP 212010- Blue & Green Lines Transit Passenger Information System in the amount of $3,042,533.

Metro now has the opportunity to further improve the Blue & Green Lines TPIS by using the reprogrammed $3,042,533 grant funding authorized by the Department of Homeland Security to purchase additional TPIS equipment. This funding is only available as a reprogram on existing project(s), therefore, we are requesting an increase in Life-Of-Project for CP 212010 for Metro to use this available funding.
