MADISON, Wis. -- The City of Madison is set to receive over $13 million from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Transit Administration through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, officials announced Thursday.

The funding is meant to support public transportation like buses, light rail and ferry systems and is part of a total $20.5 billion that will be sent to states and communities nationwide for Fiscal Year 2024.

"We’re making history’s biggest-ever federal investment in transit – trains, buses, ferries, and more – so people can reliably and affordably get to wherever they need to be," U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said. "This $20.5 billion investment in public transportation will support the daily lives of millions of Americans across the country."

Each community gets money based on formulas and apportionments set by Congress. The formulas factor in data points including population, population density and the revenue miles of a community's public transportation system.

Statewide, Wisconsin will receive $121,085,311 in formula funding. Madison will receive $13,128,446 while Milwaukee will get $34,506,685. Green Bay is in line for $3,610,808.
