$9 Million Federal Grant for RTS
They have been planning it for years but now plans for a new bus maintenance facility have new life, thanks to an infusion of cash from the federal government.
Gainesville's Regional Transit system has received $9 million dollars from the department of transportation. The grant was announced this morning by Congresswoman Corrine Brown, city leaders and the federal transit administrator.
Gainesville won the award through the "Bus Livability Program." The grant will be used to construct phase 2 of the bus depot and other facilities.
