Stimulus Bill: $8 Billion Released for Public Transit

Monday, March 9, 2009

Comment | More

Vice President Joe Biden and U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood announced on March 5 that $8.4 billion in stimulus funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) was released for repairing and building the public transportation infrastructure.

California and New York were the only two states to receive more than $1 billion each, with a combined amount of approximately $2.3 billion. Overall, the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Guam, N. Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands split $7,476,200,000 of the money. Oversight, tribal transit, discretionary energy funding, and new starts brought the grand total to $8.4 billion.

“Investments in public transportation put people to work, but they also get people to work in a way that moves us towards our long term goals of energy security and a better quality of life,” said Secretary LaHood. “That is why transit funding was included in the ARRA and why we think it is a key part of America's transportation future.”
