Infrastructure Plan Set for Release on Feb. 12

President Trump’s long-awaited $1.5 trillion infrastructure plan is set to be released Feb. 12, a White House official said as this issue of Passenger Transport went to press.

It is expected that the plan will include principles for generating private and public investment, cut the regulatory process from 10 years to two and provide funding for rural projects. APTA will issue an analysis following release of the plan.

The president’s infrastructure proposal, budget and annual report on capital investment grants will serve to inform Congress as it continues negotiating on annual funding bills and works to achieve a bipartisan infrastructure package. As always, APTA encourages members of the public transportation industry to share their concerns and priorities with their members of Congress. Any infrastructure initiative Congress considers should include significant funding for public transportation and address the long-term solvency of the Highway Trust Fund.
