$600 Million in Infrastructure Funding to Replace Old Railcars

Transporation’s Rail Vehicle Replacement Program opens fiscal year 2023 funding.

This week, the Federal Transit Administration announced they will be distributing $600 million through the Rail Vehicle Replacement Program for the 2023 fiscal year. Subway systems, commuter rail, and light rail systems are all welcome to apply for the funding necessary to replace aging railcars throughout their transit systems. The funding was allocated to the Department of Transportation through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

“Every day, millions of Americans rely on assets like subways, commuter rail, and streetcars to get where they need to go – but too often, railcars are decades out of date,” said Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. “We are using new resources to help modernize America’s aging railcars so that riders who depend on them get faster, safer, and more reliable service.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Pete Buttigieg to head the Transportation Department with discernment.
  • For Administrator Nuria Fernandez to seek the Lord’s direction as she leads the Federal Transit Administration.
  • That administration officials are prudent in their allocations of infrastructure funding.
