Board of Transportation Approves $100,558 for Greenville Area Transit Friday, January 27, 2012

RALEIGH — The N.C. Board of Transportation at their January meeting approved $100,558 in state funding to the city of Greenville, operating as Greenville Area Transit (GREAT) through the NCDOT Public Transportation Division’s Bus and Bus Facility Program.

The Urban/Regional Bus and Facility Program provides the required state match to direct recipients of federally funded grants through the Federal Transit Administration for projects such as new buses and vehicles, as well as maintenance, operations or transfer facilities.

GREAT was approved a FTA Capital Program grant for costs associated with land purchases for the new intermodal transportation center. The state funding approved will be used as the required 10 percent match. These funds match $100,558 in local funds and $804,466 in federal funds, totaling $1 million.

Since Gov. Bev Perdue took office, the NCDOT Public Transportation Division has awarded more than $310 million in grant funds to local public transportation systems. These grants enable systems to provide people in all 100 counties access to education, job opportunities and health care.
