SEATTLE - The Puget Sound Regional Council is encouraging public comment on $607 million in federal transit funding for transit investments through 2026. The public comment period will run from November 9 to December 15, 2023.
Thirty projects have been recommended for $507 million in FTA Earned Share funding. This portion of the funds is distributed to each public transit agency in the region based on the transit services they currently provide. These funds are used for a range of transit investments, including capital expansion and preservation and maintenance of transit assets. View the detailed list on pg. 13 of the agenda packet for the November 9, 2023 meeting of the Transportation Policy Board.
Twelve projects have been recommended for $100 million in FTA Equity Formula funding. This portion of the funds is distributed to agencies based on the transit services being provided to the region’s equity focus populations, including people of color, people with low incomes, seniors, youth, people with disabilities, and people with limited English proficiency. The funds are to be used to improve transit services for these populations. View the detailed list on pg. 20 of the agenda packet for the November 9, 2023 meeting of the Transportation Policy Board.
