This is the March 6, 2014 hearing entitled, "MAP-21 [Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act] Preauthorization: The Federal Role and Current Challenges to Public Transportation" before the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs. From the opening statement of committee chairman Tim Johnson: "Today the Banking Committee will hear from representatives of the public transportation industry as the expiration of MAP--21 grows closer. Since 1995, annual transit ridership has grown by roughly 3 billion trips, and the Federal Government has been essential to this growth. The Federal Transit Administration provides more than 40 percent of the capital investment in our transit systems. Without Federal funds, our Nation's cities would not be able to continue essential repairs and upgrades of their infrastructure and vehicles." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Michael Melaniphy, Barbara Cline, and Larry Hanley.
