A five-year public transit assistance program that would cost $20-billion has been proposed by the American Public Transit Association (APTA) Board of Directors as part of a comprehensive legislative policy statement. The board, meeting at the APTA's national convention in Atlanta recently, also outlined a five-year, $5-billion urban streets and highway program and called on the federal government to provide 100-percent funding for all public transit costs associated with providing services and accessibility to elderly and handicapped persons. The APTA circulated an overview of the policy statement to members and asked them to lobby on its behalf. /GMRL/
