A total of 26 applicants including Regional Transit Authorities are receiving nearly $5.7 million from the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) Transportation for Elderly Persons and Persons with Disabilities program, and the Commonwealth’s Mobility Assistance Program (MAP).
The second round of award funding will be used toward the purchase of 123 fully accessible vans and minibuses for use by Councils on Aging, Private non-Profits, and RTAs across the Commonwealth.
The $5.7 million includes both Federal and State grants, with a total amount awarded for the 2013 MassDOT Community Transit Grant Program of $11.5 million.
A list of the award recipients is available on the Community Transit Grants website.
