Transit ShelterMassDOT’s Rail & Transit Division has announced the FY 2016 award recipients for the MassDOT Community Transit Grant Program.

A total of 44 applicants, including Regional Transit Authorities, are receiving approximately $10 million from the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) Transportation for Elderly Persons and Persons with Disabilities, Bus and Bus Facilities, and Rural Intercity Bus programs, in addition to the Commonwealth’s Mobility Assistance Program (MAP).

This award funding will be used toward the purchase of 140 fully accessible vans and minibuses for use by Councils on Aging, private non-profits and RTAs across the Commonwealth, in addition to other capital, mobility management, and operating projects. The majority of this funding is used to support mobility options for seniors and people with disabilities.

The FTA and the Commonwealth provide financial assistance through a number of programs to develop new transit systems and improve, maintain, and operate existing systems

A list of the award recipients is now available on the Community Transit Grants website: http://www.massdot.state.ma.us/Portals/12/docs/communityTransit/awards2016.pdf.
