FTA grants $776 million to improve condition of bus and rail systems
from AASHTO Journal
The Federal Transit Administration announced recently that 152 projects across 45 states and the District of Columbia will receive $776 million in "State of Good Repair" funding to rehabilitate transit systems. FTA received requests totaling more than $4 billion from 400 transit agencies — more than five times the available grant money offered. "Whether it's replacing aging buses with fuel-efficient hybrid vehicles, constructing new bus shelters and maintenance facilities, or installing updated fare boxes and fleet-tracking systems, we are helping transit agencies deliver safer and more reliable service, operate more efficiently, and lower fuel costs," U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood wrote on his blog.
