FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: BILLING CODE 4710–06–P DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Transit Administration Over-the-Road Bus Accessibility Program Announcement of Project Selections Federal Transit Administration, DOT. A total of $7.4 million was made available for the program in FY 2006: $5.6 million for intercity fixed-route providers and $1.8 million for all other providers, such as commuter, charter, and tour operators. A total of 127 applicants requested $35.1 million: $17.3 million was requested by intercity fixed-route providers, and $17.8 million was requested by all other providers. Project selections were made on a discretionary basis, based on each applicant’s responsiveness to statutory project selection criteria, fleet size, and level of funding received in previous years. Because of the high demand for the funds available, most successful applicants received less funding than they requested, and applicants with weaker applications were not selected for funding. The selected projects will provide funding for the incremental cost of adding lifts to 94 new vehicles, retrofitting 118 vehicles, and $70,765 for training. Each of the following 91 awardees, as well as the 36 applicants who were not selected for funding, will receive a letter that explains how funding decisions were made.
