The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, enacted as the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, continues the State of Good Repair grants program. This program provides financial assistance to transit agencies that operate fixed-guideway and high-intensity motorbus systems for the maintenance, replacement, and rehabilitation of capital assets, including competitive grants for rail rolling stock, as well as for the development and implementation of transit asset management plans. These funds reflect a commitment to ensuring that public transportation operates safely, efficiently, reliably, and sustainably so communities can offer balanced transportation choices that help to improve mobility, reduce congestion, and encourage economic development.
