Public Transportation Grants

TxDOT has implemented a new annual process for soliciting competitive grant proposals for Federal Transit Authority-funded programs. Formula program processes will remain unchanged. The following federal programs are funded through this competitive process:

  • Job Access Reverse Commute
  • New Freedom
  • State Planning Assistance
  • Rural Transportation Assistance
  • Intercity Bus
  • A portion of the anticipated Non-urbanized Area discretionary fund programs

The change to an annual process will:

  • Promote comprehensive system development proposals
  • Assist grantees with a more predictable timing process
  • Create greater flexibility and efficiency by allowing grantees to anticipate grants from multiple funding streams simultaneously
  • Assist in public transportation coordination efforts
