FTA Announces Funding to Modernize Rail Transit Systems

Rail Vehicle Replacement Program improves safety, accessibility, and reliability nationwide.

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Transit Administration (FTA) has announced approximately $197 million this year to replace aging railcars. The funding is intended to improve reliability, safety, and accessibility on subway, light rail, commuter rail, and other systems.

“One-third of subway and commuter rail vehicles are more than 25 years old,” said FTA Administrator Nuria Fernandez.“Americans who ride transit deserve the opportunity to travel on newer, safer, and more efficient railcars, and we are proud to provide support for transit agencies to make the significant investments needed to replace their aging railcars and make their systems more accessible.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Administrator Fernandez as she oversees the FTA’s administration of funds to modernize rail cars.
  • For discernment for Secretary Buttigieg as he heads the Department of Transportation.
  • For the safety of commuters who ride on the aging infrastructure each day.
