The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) yesterday announced the availability of $10 million in funding through the new Public Transportation COVID-19 Research Demonstration Grant Program that will identify ways to make transit operations more efficient and improve mobility nationwide.
The program will fund projects that demonstrate solutions such as: cleaning and disinfecting protocols for transit vehicles, facilities and equipment; effective exposure mitigation measures; contactless payment systems and other innovative mobility strategies; and measures that strengthen public confidence in transit services.
Applications are due Nov. 2, FTA officials said in a press release.
