ABSTRACT

COVID-19 Pandemic Threatens Public Transit Jobs and Service [September 2020]   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Key Takeaways: "1. Public transit agencies face a critical funding shortfall because of the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic that threatens jobs and service[.] 2. If Congress and the Administration do not provide $32 billion of additional COVID-19 emergency transit funding, more than six in 10 public transit agencies will have to cut transit service or furlough staff[.] 3. Without this emergency funding, transit agencies are considering laying off or furloughing staff (54 percent) and reducing service (61 percent), including eliminating routes (38 percent) and reducing days of service (20 percent)[.] 4. Eight in 10 large agencies are also considering delaying, deferring, or cancelling capital projects to close their budget gaps[.]"
