Fiscal Year 2022 - FTA Section 5339 – Bus and Bus Facilities Grant

The Federal Transit Administration Section 5339 program is a formula-based grant program to replace, rehabilitate and purchase buses and bus facilities. The program provides available federal resources to eligible direct recipients that operate fixed route bus services or that allocate funding to fixed route bus operators. The program originated though the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) which changed the program from discretionary to formula based. Funding is now designated to states and designated recipients in urbanized areas (200,000 people or more). The Winston Salem Urban Area is eligible to receive $556,276 in FY 2022. 

Program of Projects
The Winston-Salem Transit Authority is requesting to use the available funds to purchase three (3) TransAid Vans to replace aging fleet and the remaining funds for transit facility rehabilitation projects and capital maintenance. 

Public Hearing 
The Public Hearing is scheduled to occur at the Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) meeting on July 21, 2022, to provide maximum opportunities for public engagement and feedback. The July TAC meeting booklet and meeting can be accessed here once made available in the first week of July. If approved by the TAC, the City of Winston-Salem DOT will proceed with programming and amending the Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Program (MTIP) and the 2020-2029 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) and submission to FTA.
