ATL Transit Link Authority Opens Public Comment on Urbanized Area FTA Formula Funds

The Program of Projects (POP) outlines the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) formula funds allocated to the Atlanta region, and shows the projects that local governments apply the funds towards. These FTA formula funds include the Section 5307 Urbanized Area Formula Program, the 5337 State of Good Repair Grants Program, and the 5339 Bus and Bus Facilities Program.

The POP compliments the Atlanta Region MPO’s Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) which lists how all federal transportation funds are programmed. The TIP lists the suballocation amounts for the FTA formula funds while the POP goes into detail to include the specific projects that local governments spend these funds on. ATL as Designated Recipient for the Atlanta region’s urbanized FTA formula fund apportionments is responsible for gathering the Program of Project from operators and local governments.

In compliance with requirements and guidelines outlined in Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Circular 4702.1B, and the Atlanta-region Transit Link Authority (ATL) Title VI Program, comment is requested on the Atlanta Urbanized Area (UZA) FTA Formula Funds Program of Projects (POP).

The formal public comment period begins on April 23, 2021 and concludes on May 24, 2021.
