Congratulations VIA! President Biden Recommends Funding for ART N/S in President's FY 2023 Budget
This week, President Biden's fiscal year (FY) 2023 budget proposal recommended $158.1 million in New Starts funds for VIA's Advanced Rapid Transit North/South (ART N/S) project.
VIA’s ART N/S project was the only Texas project added to the President’s funding recommendation list for FY 2023. The funding recommendation was announced less than a year after the project entered the New Starts Project Development phase in August 2021. The project received its first rating of Medium-High, the second highest ranking possible. This would be the first Capital Investment Grant for San Antonio and VIA.
Congratulations to the VIA team! This is a huge accomplishment in such a short amount of time and a true testament to the dedicated and talented team of professionals at VIA.
