The Transit Award Management System (TrAMS)

Welcome to the Transit Award Management System (TrAMS), FTA’s platform to award and manage federal grants. TrAMS was created to provide greater efficiency and improved transparency and accountability. FTA deployed TrAMS in February 2016 to provide an efficient, user-friendly, and flexible tool to award and manage grants and cooperative agreements and to strengthen the integrity and consistency of our award and management financial and programmatic information. TrAMS replaced the Transit Electronic Award Management (TEAM) system which had been in operation since 1998.

Operating Status: TrAMS is Now Open for FY 2018 Financial Activity

On Friday, November 3, TrAMS opened for Fiscal Year 2018 financial activity. FTA staff will be able to complete financial transactions for new awards or complete post-award actions. Recipients will be able to complete application development and transmit applications to FTA for review and approval, as well as create and submit budget revisions and closeout amendments.
