The Greater Dayton Regional Transit Authority (GDRTA) is set to receive a federal award worth $75,046,492 from the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) through the CARES Act. This grant award will allow the GDTRA to navigate the impact of the coronavirus pandemic and fund continued public transportation services to keep the Dayton region moving during this uncertain time. The allocation of these grants was made possible by Congressman Mike Turner’s (OH-10) support of the CARES Act.

“The Greater Dayton Regional Transit Authority provides access to essential services such as grocery stores, healthcare facilities, and other businesses critical to daily life,” said Turner. “The grants provided to the GDRTA will allow our community to stay connected to these essential services and help local transit get through the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic. I will continue to support funding for our necessary local infrastructure.”
