Description: The Federal Government, through the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), provides financial and technical assistance to the local transit systems.
In accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, Federal Transit Administration documents may be made available in accessible formats upon request.
The National Transit Library is a repository of reports, documents, and data generated by professionals and laypersons from around the country. The library is designed to facilitate document sharing among people interested in transit and transit related topics. Its structure and contents are user-defined and constantly evolving. Like any library, the National Transit Library is a collection of materials of varying quality and usefulness. Inclusion in the National Transit Library does not necessarily constitute endorsement by the U.S. Department of Transportation or its agents.
The National Transit Library has documents on-line available concerning public transportation and FTA research projects.
It also contains information concerning the National Transit Geographic Information System (GIS), a representative inventory of the public transit assets of the country
