Rural & Tribal Transit : Federal Role & Public Perspective Hardback
Edited by Cliff Fairfield
Public transportation in rural areas can be critical to connecting people to jobs, shopping, and health services.
The Federal Transit Administration's (FTA) Formula Grants for Rural Areas Program (rural transit program) is FTA's only dedicated grant program for rural and tribal transit.
FTA apportions nearly all program funds to states. This book examines FTA's funding, oversight, and other support for the rural transit program; changes in services, ridership, and costs since 2009; and challenges that rural and tribal transit providers face and possible actions to address them.
