This notice solicits proposals to compete for Fiscal Year (FY) 2009 funds through the Paul S.
Sarbanes Transit in Parks Program (Transit in Parks Program), formerly the Alternative Transportation in Parks and Public Lands program (ATPPL), administered by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA)
in partnership with the Department of the Interior (DOI) and the U. S. Department of Agricultures Forest Service.
The purpose of the program is to enhance the protection of national parks and Federal lands, and increase the enjoyment of visitors experience.
The program funds capital and planning expenses for alternative transportation systems such as buses and trams in federally-managed parks and public lands.
Federal land management agencies, as well as State, tribal and local governments acting with the consent of a Federal land management agency are eligible to apply.
DOI, after consultation with and in cooperation with FTA, will determine the final selection and funding of projects.
