​AUSTIN – The Texas Transportation Commission yesterday awarded more than $75 million in federal and state funds to transit providers who offer transportation services to Texas veterans, seniors, people with disabilities, and others who need help getting to work, school, heal​​th care facilities, and other important destinations. 

Transit agencies supported by these mobility funds reported more than 34 million trips in 2014.

Funds also will facilitate travel to community programs and other destinations.

By providing park-and-ride commuter services, vanpools, and other options for those who choose to commute via public transportation, the Texas Department of Transportation says the funds also help address congestion relief in rapidly growing areas.
