New Funding will Help Expand Access to Transit for People with Disabilities

Because of new bipartisan infrastructure legislation, nearly $2 billion is coming to transit agencies across the country to help deal with an accessibility gap. The infrastructure measure creates a $1.75 billion five-year grant program for transit and commuter rail agencies to upgrade their stations. The program is just a small part of the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill that also demands accessibility improvements at Amtrak stations and a permanent disability advocate on the Amtrak board of directors.
