Transit Needs $232B in Infrastructure Investments

America’s public transportation systems need at least $232 billion in investments over the next 10 years in order to bring their infrastructure to a state of good repair, said the American Public Transportation Association.

APTA said it has discussed its findings with congressional staff members attending a legislative conference in Washington.

The study cited a number of sources, including a 2015 U.S. Department of Transportation infrastructure status report that concluded there is a $89.8-billion backlog of spending needed on state of good repair transit projects.

The report also included $51.2-billion in projects awaiting review for funding from the Federal Transit Administration’s Capital Investment Grant program.

Other data came from a survey of APTA members, 55 of which named 169 additional projects costing $91 billion.
