Over-the-Road Bus Accessibility Program Grants: Notice of Availability of Fiscal Year 2011 Funds

The U. S. Department of Transportation's (DOT) Federal Transit Administration (FTA) announces the availability of funds in Fiscal Year (FY) 2011 for the Over-the-Road Bus (OTRB) Accessibility Program, authorized by Section 3038 of the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21).



OTRB Accessibility Program makes funds available to private operators of over-the-road buses to finance the incremental capital and training costs of complying with DOT's over-the-road bus accessibility regulation.

The authorizing legislation calls for national solicitation of applications, with grantees to be selected on a competitive basis.

Federal transit funds are available to intercity fixed-route providers and other OTRB providers at up to 90 percent of the project cost.

A total of $8,800,000 is now available for both intercity fixed-route and other providers of services using over-the-road buses.

Agency: DOT/Federal Transit Administration


Estimated Funding: $8,800,000

Obtain Full Opportunity Text:
FR Volume 76, Number 134 (Wednesday, July 13, 2011)

Additional Information of Eligibility:
Grants will be made directly to operators of OTRBs.

Intercity, fixed-route OTRB service providers may apply for the funds that were appropriated for intercity fixed-route providers in FY 2011.

Applicants must establish eligibility as intercity fixed-route providers by meeting established criteria on six factors identified in the application.

Other OTRB service providers, including operators of local fixed-route service, commuter service, and charter or tour service may apply for the funds that were appropriated in FY 2011 for these providers.

OTRB operators who provide both intercity, fixed-route service and another type of service, such as commuter, charter or tour, may apply for both categories of funds with a single application.

Private for-profit operators of over-the-road buses are eligible to be direct applicants for this program.

This is a departure from most other FTA programs for which the direct applicant must be a State or local public body.

FTA does not award grants to public entities under this program.
