Local governments who operate a bus transportation system can receive assistance for their programs through the Bus and Bus Facilities Grants through the U.S. Department of Transportation. Eligible expenses covered under this program include the purchase of new buses, bus maintenance, mobile radio units, park-and-ride stations, shop and garage equipment, passenger shelters, and more.
There is an estimated $45 million available for this grant program in fiscal year 2013. Municipalities eligible for these grants must be developing programs that integrate housing, land use, economic and workforce development, transportation, and infrastructure investments. This grant program puts an emphasis on partnerships, including non-traditional partnerships such as arts and culture, public education, or food systems.
