Overseeing the transformation of public transportation in American cities and towns

The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) assists in developing improved mass transportation systems for cities and communities nationwide. Through its grant programs, FTA helps plan, build, and operate transit systems with convenience, cost and accessibility in mind. While buses and rail vehicles are the most common type of public transportation, other kinds include commuter ferryboats, trolleys, inclined railways, subways, and people movers.

California is committed to safety first, mitigating transportation sector climate impacts, and advancing transportation equity for all. On this page, learn about specific programs that have been created using funds from IIJA, to understand how they will impact Californians and travelers in our state.
