  • $24 billion: State of Good Repair Grants
  • $21.5 billion: Capital Investment Grants
  • $11 billion: Bus and Bus Facilities, including over $4 billion for zero-emission buses

  • $1 billion: All Stations Accessibility Programs Grants (Americans with Disabilities Act Grants)
  • $1 billion: Reducing Transit Deserts
  • $416 million: Bus Frequency/Ridership Competitive Grants
  • $134 million: Transit Supportive Communities

The INVEST in America Act also includes $5.6 billion for 1,473 Member Designated Projects of which 237 are transit specific. In Missouri, KCATA received a $10.5 million grant for their electric bus program.  The bill now moves to the Senate, which has its own version of surface transportation reauthorization.
