The Section 5307 program allocates funds to the state and urbanized areas based on a formula for various capital projects, including new or replacement rolling stock, vehicles and equipment. Both bus and rail projects are eligible.
A small portion of these funds is allocated to operating deficits. In the Greater Bridgeport planning region, only paratransit services are eligible for receiving Section 5307 operating assistance. The MetroCog works with the GBT, SWRPA and the other transit districts in the Bridgeport-Stamford urbanized area to develop an agreed-to list of projects to be funded by the Section 5307 program.
