On September 20, 2021, the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) announced $410M in grant funding for the latest round of the Bus and Bus Facilities Program. These grants provide support to agencies and cities who are looking to purchase new public transit vehicles, replace vehicles, or to build or upgrade transit facilities. Eligible applicants include transit agencies, tribal governments, and state or local governments that operate fixed route bus service.  

Software is also an eligible expense for the Bus and Bus Facilities Program. Remix by Via’s Streets software can be a helpful supporting tool for planning bus-supportive infrastructure. The Scheduling platform has tools that help transform transit plans into bus and driver schedules. Applicants can also use this grant as an opportunity to electrify your microtransit program by swapping ICE vehicles for EVs. If you’re interested in exploring city planning, bus or driver scheduling tools as part of your Bus and Bus Facilities Program application, please reach out to partnerships@ridewithvia.com. We’d love to help you through the application process and on the project itself. Applications are due on November 19th.
