FTA decision to benefit people with physical disabilities.

View Forum | Print Article | Font Size + / - | Back

A Federal Transit Administration (FTA) decision made in July will benefit people with physical disabilities who use public transportation.

Braun Corporation has received “Buy America” final assembly status from the FTA. Buy America provisions ensure that transportation infrastructure projects are built with American-made products.

In January, Braun petitioned the FTA to determine if its manufacturing activities qualify for final assembly as provided for in the Buy America requirements. That effort resulted in the FTA’s decision to grant Braun such status. 

The decision allows Braun to continue competing for state transit contracts with reliable and fuel-efficient vehicles that meet all federal safety and emissions regulations.
