Transit Reboot in the Napa Valley
Kevin Courtney reports that the NCTPA is taking the federal grants and running with them:
"Over the past two and a half years, the agency has received $11 million - including a $2.4 million federal grant this month - to buy 38 new vehicles, the last of which will arrive in another year or two, said Tom Roberts, NCTPA's manager of public transit."
"More than $9 million of $11 million in acquisition funds has come in the form of state and federal grants, with the remainder funded by Napa County's share of the gas tax dedicated to transit, Roberts said."
The new transit center is scheduled to open next summer, and the new buses will start taking riders in 2013.
