Today, Congresswoman Lois Frankel (FL-21) announced the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) is awarding Palm Tran $50,701,790 in CARES Act funding.

“Palm Tran is a vital public transportation service here in Palm Beach County,” said Rep. Frankel. “This critical funding will be used to make sure that Palm Tran is able to continue to operate safely for the commuters who have come to rely on this service and for the essential workers who operate it.”

The funding will help Palm Tran support operating costs to maintain service, including the purchase of personal protective equipment and paying the administrative leave of operations personnel due to reductions in service, in order to respond to and recover from COVID-19.
