Fiscal Year 2020 Public Transportation Funding: Program of Projects
Handout

NCTCOG staff will present proposed transit projects funded by the Federal Transit Administration through the final award of Fiscal Year 2020 funds for the following four programs: Urbanized Area Formula, Enhanced Mobility of Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities, State of Good Repair, and Bus and Bus Facilities. This input opportunity meets the federal requirement for public participation in programs of projects. Please note DART hosts their own public meeting and can be contacted directly for more information.
The following agencies’ programs of projects will be presented:
City of Arlington, City of Grand Prairie, City of McKinney, City of Mesquite, Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART), Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA), North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG), Trinity Metro, Northeast Transportation Service (NETS), Public Transit Services (PTS), Span, Inc. and STAR Transit.

Heavy-Duty Vehicle Emissions Impact Study
In coordination with NCTCOG, an oversize/overweight (OS/OW) heavy-duty vehicles study was conducted by Texas A&M Transportation Institute. The main goal of the study was to characterize and estimate emissions impacts of OS/OW vehicles on air quality in the Dallas-Fort Worth nonattainment area. Staff will present findings and recommendations.

Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Funding & Other Clean Vehicle Incentives
Rebate funding will soon be available for the installation of electric vehicle charging stations across Texas through the Texas Volkswagen Environmental Mitigation Program. Staff will present key details on how to take advantage of this funding as well as provide other opportunities available for citizens or fleets to acquire cleaner vehicles.

Optimizing Freight Movement Project
Staff will present details of a $5 million project proposal designed to improve the flow of truck traffic between freight hubs and expressways. The project will identify where improving the flow of trucks can do the most good as well as select one or more technologies to improve truck travel.
