 FOR RURAL, ELDERLY AND DISABLED PERSONS
 WASHINGTON, April 17 /PRNewswire/ -- The Department of Transportation's Federal Transit Administration (FTA) has announced its intention to award $808 million in grants to fund local public transit projects, aid transportation in rural areas and improve transit services for elderly passengers and those with disabilities.
 "These 129 formula grants to 35 states and the District of Columbia will go to transit agencies, state governments and planning organizations to be used for purposes as diverse as vehicle acquisition, construction and rehabilitation of transit facilities, planning studies, maintenance equipment and bus shelters," said FTA Administrator Brian W. Clymer.
 "These grants will bolster the economy by generating thousands of jobs across the nation while also improving mobility and reducing congestion," said Secretary of Transportation Andrew H. Card Jr.
 The announcement includes three planning grants, as well as six grants for programs serving the elderly and disabled persons and 10 for rural transportation services.
 The largest award is a grant of $200 million to the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority for capital improvement projects for the New York City transit system and commuter railroads.
