State public transit funds to develop infrastructure in Williamsport, State CollegeDate Published: February 7, 2022
This past week, state government passed an infrastructure law to fund public transportation projects across the Commonwealth.
The $234 million package, administered by the Federal Transit Administration, will allow for infrastructure upgrades and new projects in both urban and rural areas, as well as funding to improve access to transit for seniors and people with disabilities.
“Thanks to the infrastructure law, many of the Commonwealth’s public transit systems will be able to upgrade vehicles, improve facilities and provide faster, safer and more convenient service,” said Senator Casey. “I’m also very pleased that this bill includes $8 million to directly make public transportation more accessible to our seniors and people with disabilities. This is just a down-payment of what’s to come for Pennsylvania’s public transit.”
