Advancing Sustainable Transit and Passenger Rail
The IIJA marks a significant increase in investment toward more sustainable transportation options. It represents the largest investment in passenger rail since the creation of Amtrak and will provide needed funding to replace transit vehicles and rail rolling stock powered by carbon-intensive fossil fuels with clean, zero emissions vehicles.
This Advisory Services Policy Brief summarizes the significant public transportation and passenger rail provisions of the bill, as well as Federal-Aid Highway Program funds eligible to support transit and rail projects.
