The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) announced a $28.22 million grant to the City of El Paso, Texas for the Montana Rapid Transit Service (RTS) Corridor project. The project will provide faster, more reliable transit service to important destinations in downtown El Paso, the El Paso International Airport, and the Far East Transfer Center.

The Montana RTS Corridor project is a 16.8-mile bus rapid transit (BRT) service operating along the Montana Avenue Corridor. The total project cost is $49.2 million with $28.22 million in funding requested through FTA’s Capital Investment Grants (CIG) Program.

Funding for the Montana RTS Corridor project is provided through FTA’s CIG Program, which provides funding for major transit infrastructure projects nationwide.
