Federal grants fund 11 public transportation projects in Michigan
Nine public transportation systems in Michigan have won competitive grants from the U.S. Department of Transportation. The grants announced Thursday total nearly $44 million.
The biggest grant worth close to $7 million will replace the existing bus station for the transit system in Port Huron. It’ll be more centrally located so transfers won’t take as long.
The grants will also build new environmentally certified bus stations in Holland and Alpena.
Millions of dollars will go to replace worn out busses in Metro-Detroit, Ann Arbor, Flint, and Lansing. Many of these new busses will feature either hybrid-electric, compressed natural gas or biodiesel technology.
The state has a pretty cool chart comparing the various bus systems across Michigan.
