The American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act of 2021 includes $365.9B in direct funding from the Federal Government for state, local, tribal, and territory infrastructure systems, including over $30B for transportation. This funding presents an unprecedented opportunity to build back transit systems that are scalable, accessible, and stronger than ever.


The funds available for transportation help cover the operating expenses of transit agencies to respond to the COVID-19 emergency. This includes payroll, operating costs, debt services, capital investments, and transportation planning. ARP funds are available through 2024, but the FTA must establish funding opportunities no later than September 7, 2021.


To help transit agencies maximize the opportunities presented by this plan, we've compiled a list of powerful investments for these funds.
