In its role of providing financial assistance to develop new transit systems and improve, maintain, and operate existing systems nationwide, FTA oversees thousands of grants provided to states, tribes, and local public agencies to support public transportation.

      Urban mass transit probably fades away in the robocar era, particularly outside rush hour. However, there will still be demand for intercity mass transit, and of course airlines. An intercity train, which offers the ability to walk around as it rides on smooth rails, has attractions that overcome its downsides -- starts and stops, and having to.   Recently, urban rail transit networks (URTNs) have been paid more and more attention because these systems play the crucial rule in the travel of the city, especially in the large cities. Meanwhile, URTNs have many advantages, such as convenience, small pollutions, relieving the traffic pressure and decreasing traffic congestions of the ground Cited by:
