The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) has placed in the docket and on its Web site, proposed guidance in the form of a circular to assist grantees in implementing the Enhanced Mobility for Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities Program. The Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP–21, Pub. L. 112– 141) blended the New Freedom Program (49 U.S.C. 5317) and the Elderly Individuals and Individuals with Disabilities Program (49 U.S.C. 5310) into a new Enhanced Mobility for Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities Program, authorized at 49 U.S.C. 5310. FTA is updating the circular due to these   changes in the law. By this notice, FTA invites public comment on the proposed circular for this program.
