Actual use of the funds (i.e., exactly how the funds are programmed – operating assistance, vehicles, etc.) depends on the location and should be determined by each designated recipient with its subrecipients.
The two most valuable overall uses of the funds are:
1) Provide essential transit services in areas where there is no public transportation and
2) Provide supplemental transit services in areas where there is public transportation but it is unavailable, insufficient, or inappropriate.
