Phoenix is getting nearly $200 million in federal assistance to help prop up the city's transportation system during the coronavirus outbreak.

The U.S. Department of Transportation recently announced a $198 million award to Phoenix under legislation approved in late March.

The department said Phoenix will use the federal funding to cover operating expenses for the city Public Transit Department as well as costs of the rail, bus and paratransit services.

The head of the Federal Transit Administration said the agency knows that many of the country's public transportation systems face extraordinary challenges during the outbreak and that the funding will help provide essential travel.
