U.S. Rep. Albio Sires (D-8) is applauding the Federal Transit Administration for awarding NJ Transit a $60,600 via the Access and Mobility Partnerships Grants Program.
“These grants, which total $60,600, will help NJ Transit improve transit programs for our seniors, individuals with disabilities, and low-income individuals,â€ Sires said in a statement.
â€œThere are many people in our communities who do not enjoy easy access to transportation but nevertheless need to remain mobile. This grant award will help our State improve its transit service so that no one in need is left behind, and I look forward to seeing what NJ Transit does with this opportunity.â€
The FTAâ€™s Access and Mobility Partnership Grants are aimed at financing projects that help improve standard and non-emergency medical transportation services and supporting better coordination between healthcare providers and transit agencies on transit options for individuals in need.
