FTA today announced approximately $58.2 million in project selections to improve the safety and reliability of America’s passenger ferry systems and enhance mobility for transit riders across the country. A total of 20 projects in 12 states will receive funding from FTA’s Passenger Ferry Grant Program. A list of the selected projects is available online.
