The American Public Transportation Association (APTA) has asked the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to reverse an interim policy related to the COVID-19 pandemic that eliminates the ability of public transit agencies to seek reimbursement for purchasing disinfectants, personal protective equipment and similar related costs.

In a letter to FEMA sent last week, APTA President and Chief Executive Officer Paul Skoutelas wrote that, given transit agencies' enormous budget shortfalls related to the pandemic, "transit agencies cannot afford a change in policy that burdens them with additional costs related to COVID-19."
