New Freedoms Initiative

This program provides funds for public transportation services that are beyond those required by the Americans with Disabilities Act that assist individuals with disabilities with transportation.

The FTA Section 5317 New Freedoms Initiative (NFI) program provides funds for new and enhanced public transportation services and alternatives that are beyond those required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) that assist individuals with disabilities with transportation. MetroCog works with the GBT, SWRPA and the other transit districts in the Bridgeport-Stamford urbanized area to determine projects to be funded by the Section 5317 program.
