Metro Plans to Spend Stim on Bus and Rail Improvements
While the main action before the Metro Board today is balancing the transit budget for the next year, and the options to cut bus service or slightly increase fares to accomplish that, the board also is on track to approve use of $202 million in federal stimulus money.
The list of projects should bring some joy: Buy new buses to replace the oldest in the fleet, replace the Metro Sales Office, fix crumbling platforms and add more fare vending machines that can handle SmarTrip transactions. That's a partial list. You can review the full list here on Metro's Web site.
