FTA Announces New Round of Available Funding to Make Transit Stations Accessible for All

Published on: December 3, 2023

The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) today announced the availability of $343 million in Fiscal Year 2024 federal funding to 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. Hundreds of transit stations built before 1990, known as legacy stations, are not accessible to people with disabilities.

The All Stations Accessibility Program (ASAP), created by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will increase access to our transportation system and advance the Biden-Harris Administration’s priorities of promoting equity, addressing the workforce shortage, and boosting economic strength. Funding through ASAP ensures that those relying on rail systems can get to work and school, be less dependent on vehicles, save money, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Instructions for applying and eligibility information can be found on FTA’s Website and in GRANTS.GOV (FTA-2024-001-TPM-ASAP). Complete proposals must be submitted electronically through the GRANTS.GOV “APPLY” function by January 30, 2024.
