ITS America President & CEO Shailen Bhatt on President-elect Biden’s Relief Plan

“ITS America supports President-elect Biden’s multi-pronged, $1.9 trillion plan to end the coronavirus pandemic by providing much-needed relief to the country, the economy, state and local governments, and individuals. It is a step in the right direction on the path to a long recovery, and we look forward to seeing the infrastructure package.

“Transit agencies across the country have been sounding alarms for months about dire service cuts, and the proposed $20 billion will go a long way to provide help. While there is a greater need, including among state and local transportation agencies, we are very encouraged by this proposal’s laser focus on COVID-related emergency assistance.”
