FTA Announced Pandemic Aid to Public Transit

The Federal Transit Administration plans to award $14 billion in funding to help public transportation agencies survive the COVID-19 pandemic.

The funds were included in the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2021 approved by Congress last month.

The funds will be divided into $13.27 billion for large and small urban areas, $678.2 million to rural areas and tribes, and $50 million for the enhanced mobility of seniors and individuals with disabilities.

In a news release, FTA officials said the supplemental funding will help transit service remain available for riders traveling to jobs, health care and other essential services,.
