COVID-19 Pandemic Threatens Public Transit Jobs and Service [January 2021]   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Key Takeaways: "1. Public transit agencies face a critical funding shortfall that threatens jobs and service due to the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic[.] 2. In 2020, 65 percent of public transit agencies were forced to cut service. Four in 10 agencies are considering additional cuts to service to close their budget gaps[.] 3. Nearly one in every three agencies (28 percent) have delayed, deferred, or cancelled capital projects, impacting jobs at manufacturers and construction firms across the country[.] 4. If Congress and the Administration do not provide significant additional COVID-19 emergency transit funding, many public transit agencies will be forced to cut service and lay off or furlough employees[.]"
