MAP-21 Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century

Congress establishes the legal authority to commence and continue FTA programs through authorizing legislation covering several years. On July 6, 2012, President Obama signed Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21), reauthorizing surface transportation programs through fiscal year 2014. Each reauthorization amends the Federal Transit Laws codified in 49 USC Chapter 53. MAP-21 took effect on October 1, 2012.
