Notice of Request for the Extension of a Currently Approved 
Information Collection

AGENCY: Federal Transit Administration, DOT.

ACTION: Notice of request for comments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, this 
notice announces the intention of the Federal Transit Administration 
(FTA) to request the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to renew the 
following information collection:

49 U.S.C. Section 5339 Bus and Bus Facilities Program OMB Control No.: 
2132-0576

    49 U.S.C. Section 5339--Bus and Bus Facilities Formula Program, was 
originally authorized by the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st 
Century (MAP-21). The program was reauthorized under the Fixing 
America's Surface Transportation (FAST) Act Section 3017. This program 
authorizes the Secretary of Transportation to provide funding to 
replace, rehabilitate and purchase buses and related equipment and to 
construct bus-related facilities including technological changes or 
innovations to modify low or no emission vehicles or facilities.
    Funding is provided through formula allocations and competitive 
grants. Two competitive grant programs were added: 5339(b) for bus and 
bus facility projects and 5339(c) for bus and bus facility projects 
that support low and zero-emission vehicles. Eligible recipients 
include 5307 Direct Recipients, States and Federally Recognized Tribes. 
Eligible sub-recipients include those recipients that receive a grant 
under the formula or discretionary programs and may allocate amounts 
from the grant to sub-recipients that are public agencies or private 
nonprofit organizations engaged in public transportation.
    Recipients apply for grants electronically and FTA collects 
milestone and financial status reports from designated recipients and 
states on a quarterly basis. The information submitted ensures FTA's 
compliance with applicable federal laws.
