President Biden, USDOT Announce More than $20 Billion for Communities of All Sizes to Support Transit This Year

Published on: April 7, 2022

FTA today announced a more than $20 billion investment in American transit, thanks to the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. The funding levels, detailed by FTA in apportionment tables for each of 30 programs for Fiscal Year 2022, will provide 58% more funding, enabling transit agencies to modernize and expand services for residents in communities large and small.

Full-year funding is available following Congressional passage of an FY 2022 appropriations bill in March. The new tables reflect funding increases authorized by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, allowing thousands of transit agencies to buy new buses and railcars, address their repair backlogs, modernize their fleets, and transition to new technologies to address the climate crisis.

Each year, more than 65 percent of the funding distributed by FTA comes from the programs informed by the formulas released today.

The tables allow transit agencies and grant recipients to view the amounts for programs so they can better plan and manage for new and expanded transit projects that benefit their communities.
