DOT Funds 17 Transportation Accessibility Projects

The department selects Pilot Program grant recipients with the most innovative strategies.

The Department of Transportation (DOT) released $7.8 million to 17 projects making innovative accessibility improvements to state public transportation systems. Distributed through the Access & Mobility Pilot Program, selected projects include trip scheduling and fare collection for non-emergency medical transportation in rural Illinois, vehicle additions to the bus fleet of Central Oklahoma, and contactless payment technology for residents of the Black Hills.

“Transportation is a lifeline that connects Americans to essential services, like health care, and today we’re supporting innovative projects to help more people connect to the help they need,” said Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. “These transportation projects, made possible by President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, will help people with disabilities, older adults, and low-income individuals access the health services they need.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For U.S. transportation officials as they support accessibility to public transit for those who are disabled, elderly, or low-income.
  • For Secretary Buttigieg to be discerning as he heads the Transportation Department and efforts to improve public transit.
