FTA Update (January 2021)

The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) is working closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other Federal partners to provide guidance to the public transportation industry in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19). FTA posted a new Frequently Asked Question (CE18) regarding eligibility of transportation services to COVID-19 vaccination sites on its website that covers the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act and ER funding requirements.
