March 19, 2010 -- Federal Recovery Act funding continues to flow to Michigan, this time as a $524,000 Flex Funds Grant to small transit agencies in 13 counties, said the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT). The grant will enable bus agencies to purchase items needed to provide services and keep operations running efficiently. Purchases will include maintenance equipment, computers, vehicles, tires, bike racks and surveillance equipment and more. This round of federal funding represents another opportunity to upgrade the overall condition of the rural transit fleet.
The projects were selected at the local level, involving road, transit and local governments. The funding grants required no match from the local system or from the state of Michigan.
Attached is the Flex Funds Grant
of 14 projects in 13 counties that was approved by the Federal Transit Administration, plus the project cost.
MDOT: Working with our partners at airports, bus systems, marine and rail to find innovative solutions for Michigan's transportation systems.
