Public-Private Partnerships

A public-private partnership (PPP) is a method of financing infrastructure where a private entity provides funds up front to build a project. This is done so that public agencies do not have to wait for funds from public sources to trickle in over the course of many years. Instead, the incoming public funds can be used to reimburse the private entity that provided the amount to start work on a project. That entity, in turn, receives a concession to build the project.

Metro and other public agencies, here at home and across the globe, are increasingly using this method to fund projects without having to wait for government appropriations. Learn more abou this intriguing concept here!
