Proposed Fed Legislation: Public Transit To Connect To Low-Income Communities, Affordable Housing

  • Date: 09/13/2021

Georgia’s United State State Senators have introduced the Public Transportation Expansion Act in an effort to fund construction of public transportation specifically connecting affordable housing with transit networks in order to serve riders and commuters in low-income communities.

The Public Transportation Expansion Act will create a Federal grant program to fund public transportation expansion to serve low-income communities and connect affordable housing with transit networks. The bill would also, for the first time in decades, allow large transit operators to use federal funds for operating expenses, what Ossoff called “a game-changer for transit agencies.”
