Federal Transit Administration

Over-the-Road Bus Accessibility

AGENCY: Federal Transit Administration, DOT.

ACTION: Program guidance revision, extension of application deadline.


    The Federal Transit Administration provided program guidance and 
application procedures in a Federal Register Notice dated February 8, 
1999, ``Over-the-road Bus Accessibility Program Grants.'' That notice 
stated that ``applicants should not incur costs prior to grant approval 
by FTA.'' Based upon comments from representatives of the over-the-road 
bus industry, that statement is rescinded and the guidance is hereby 
revised: the incremental capital cost for adding wheelchair lift 
equipment to any new vehicles delivered on or after June 9, 1998, the 
effective date of the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century, 
is eligible for funding under the over-the-road bus accessibility 
program. In addition, the deadline for submitting grant applications to 
the FTA regional offices has changed from April 16, 1999 to May 14, 
1999. Applicants must comply with all other program guidance provided 
in the February 8, 1999 Federal Register Notice.

    Issued on: April 8, 1999.
