FEDERAL AID WILL PROVIDE BOOST FOR US CITY TRANSIT

The United States' Urban Mass Transportation Administration (UMTA) is to get $1000 million under President Nixon's 1973-74 fiscal budget. That's less than US transit advocates had been asking for, but an increase on the $980 million now budgeted for fiscal 1972/73. In fact, UMTA's present year's budget--due to be spent by July--was also originally $1000 million, but a $20 million personal-rapid transit item has now been scrapped. The 1973-74 budget includes $80 million for research, demonstration and development programs.
