FTA Announces $686 Million in Grants to Modernize Older Transit Stations and Improve Accessibility Across the Country

Published on: December 21, 2022

The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) today announced 15 grants in nine states to help make it easier for people with disabilities and mobility needs to access some of the nation’s oldest and busiest rail transit systems through essential upgrades, such as elevators.

Funded by President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the approximately $686 million in grants represents the first round of funding from the new All Stations Accessibility Program, which is designed to improve the accessibility of transit rail stations so everyone, including those who use wheelchairs, push strollers, or cannot easily navigate stairs, can reliably access the rail systems in their communities.

President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law provides $1.75 billion for this important program through 2026.
