The American Public Transportation Association (APTA) this week stated its support for public transit funding included in the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.
The bill, H.R. 1319, would provide $30.5 billion in COVID-19 emergency funding to help public transit agencies survive the economic impacts of the pandemic.
"Based on an independent economic analysis of COVID-19 impacts on public transit funding needs, APTA estimates that public transit agencies face $39.3 billion of additional costs and revenue losses, in addition to the emergency public transit funding provided in 2020," said APTA President and Chief Executive Officer Paul Skoutelas in a press release.
