2015 TIGER Grant Standouts for Cities Go to BRT, Bike Trails and More

The U.S. Department of Transportation announced the seventh batch of TIGER (Transportation Investments Generating Economic Recovery) awards last week. As in previous years, the competition for these grants was intense: 627 applications for a total of $10.1 billion in funding poured in from all 50 states, a number of U.S. territories and tribal governments. The U.S. DOT awarded $500 million in grants to 39 of those projects in 34 states.
