Abstract: The increase of activity together with often difficult budgets and schedules in busway and rail transit projects since 1960, has made the processes of project control for these projects critical to the success of these projects. The authors examine the historical record, focusing on the projects since BART in San Francisco, and using the Baltimore and Los Angeles projects as recent examples. 5 critical issues in the budget and schedule control side of these projects are defined.
