DART granted $69.3 million in FTA funds

Posted on March 12, 2002

U.S. Secretary of Transportation Norman Mineta announced Monday that $69.3 million in Federal Transit Administration (FTA) funds was granted to the Dallas Area Rapid Transit Authority (DART). The secretary made the announcement at the American Public Transportation Association's Annual Legislative Conference in Washington, D.C. The grant will be used to continue construction of DART's North Central Light Rail Transit line extension for the Dallas area. The project, a 12.5-mile double-track rail system with nine stations, extends from Dallas to the city of Plano, Texas. Monday's grant and the FTA's previous commitment of $161,612,674 will provide a total of $230,913,590 toward the $333 million committed to the project in the Full Funding Grant Agreement that was approved on Oct. 6, 1999.
