How to Help: Texas
How to Help: Florida
The public transit industry has stepped up to help their brothers and sisters in the state of Florida with recovery from Hurricane Irma. Based on the advice from our colleagues in Texas they have offered guidance below for how you can offer REAL help.
Competitive Bus Capital Request Show Demand for New Buses Growing
CTAA has learned (thanks to our partners at The Bus Coalition) that demand for the 2017 Section 5339 No-Lo and Competitive Bus Capital programs has increased. In this year's cycle, transit systems requested $8.7 for every $1 available (demand was $7.7 for every dollar available last year). FTA expects to announce the no-lo emission program winners later this month with the full Bus and Bus Facilities program decision made public later this fall.
