The mission of the Georgia DOT Transit Office is to “Identify and support cost effective, efficient and safe transportation systems.” This is accomplished through the distribution and oversight management of Federal Transit Administration (FTA) grants authorized under the FAST Act – “Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act” FTA’s most recent authorizing legislation is the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST), Public Law No. 114-94, signed into law on December 4, 2015.
The FAST Act maintains our focus on safety.
Transportation is one of the biggest barriers to independence for people with disabilities. The Statewide Independent Living Council of Georgia is currently working to make transportation affordable and accessible for all. SILCGA’s goal is to increase mobility options for people with disabilities by improving and expanding access to transportation; especially in rural areas of the state. By completing the survey, we will be able to determine what the needs are and how to best address them accordingly. Take advantage of this opportunity to help improve public transportation for all Georgians!
The Tranist Office invites the public to review and submit comments regarding the State Management Plan draft. The plan outlines the management framework, policies and processes used to meet federal requirements for transit programs.
