Washington, D.C. (March 11, 2024) – American Public Transportation Association (APTA) President and CEO Paul P. Skoutelas released the following statement:

“We applaud the Biden-Harris Administration’s steadfast commitment to providing critical investments in infrastructure improvements for passenger connectivity around the country. The historic investments in public transportation under the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act are vital for America’s future strength and prosperity. Strong public transit and passenger rail grows the economy by connecting people to jobs, education, healthcare, businesses, and opportunities. Investing fully in public transportation will benefit all Americans.

“This coming year, APTA and its more than 1,500 public- and private- sector member organizations will continue to work with the Biden-Harris Administration, Congress, and regional leaders to put this investment to work. Our goal is to strengthen our nation’s public transit and passenger rail infrastructure for the future and achieve the vision that President Biden has laid out.”
