APTA Commends Congress for Passing Fiscal Year 2012 Appropriations Bill Which Increases Funding for Public Transportation - Mass Transit: "Although current public transportation infrastructure needs far exceed the appropriated funds, we applaud Congress for taking this action which will address important transit and highway needs and put Americans back to work. Every $1 billion in public transportation investment supports or creates 36,000 jobs. Also, for every $1 invested in public transportation, $4 is generated in economic returns."
