Public Transit’s Role in An Infrastructure Proposal

Public Transit’s Role in An Infrastructure Proposal2019-05-13T14:55:52-04:00

Bipartisan efforts to enact an infrastructure investment bill will provide a critically important opportunity to address the nation’s growing infrastructure needs. An essential element of any such plan must be to improve our nation’s public transportation systems.

The American Public Transportation Association (APTA) has identified a need for at least $232 billion in public transportation projects around the nation that could benefit from such a package. These investments are necessary to provide safe, reliable and convenient public transportation and to meet the mobility needs of communities of all sizes. Public transportation investment yields a 4-to-1 return to the U.S. economy

The $232 billion in projects was derived by combining the amount necessary to bring bus and rail assets to a state of good repair, projects currently in the Capital Investment Grants pipeline, and additional priority projects identified by public transit agencies around the nation.
