DOT Announces $211 Million for New Buses and Facilities

The grants will allow for a more modern, reliable bus service for transit riders across the country. "Maintaining our public transit systems in a state of good repair is vitally important to meet the needs of today's transit riders and a growing population," FTA Acting Administrator Carolyn Flowers said.

DOT's Federal Transit Administration (FTA) announced the selections for its Bus and Bus Facilities Grant Program that will help provide a more modern, reliable bus service for transit riders across the country. There are a total of 61 projects in 41 states, as well as the Virgin Islands and Indian country, that will receive nearly $211 million in order to replace, rehabilitate, and purchase transit buses and equipment.

"The Obama Administration is committed to improving transportation options that connect people in rural and urban areas across the country to opportunities," said U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx. "These grants will improve mobility for thousands of transit riders who depend on bus service every day, expanding access to employment, education, healthcare, and other important services in their communities."

The projects include initiatives to replace, rehabilitate, and purchase buses and equipment, as well as projects to purchase, rehabilitate, and construct bus-related facilities. "FTA is proud to partner with state, local, and tribal authorities to invest in projects that will help improve the condition of our nation's public transportation bus fleets," said FTA Acting Administrator Carolyn Flowers. "Maintaining our public transit systems in a state of good repair is vitally important to meet the needs of today's transit riders and a growing population."
