SPUR urges congress to include funding for transit in COVID-19 relief package

Policy Letter March 18, 2020

SPUR urges Congress to account for the revenue impacts to transit in rescue packages as part of the novel coronavirus response. We further urge Congress to distribute funding using a formula-based approach that accounts for losses faced by all transit operators throughout the country and that targets formula funding to those operators like BART, Caltrain and SF Muni that are heavily dependent on steeply declining fare revenues and sales taxes.
