Board of Transportation Approves $92,596 for Capital Area Transit Friday, January 27, 2012

RALEIGH — The N.C. Board of Transportation at its January meeting approved $92,596 in state funding to the city of Raleigh, operating as Capital Area Transit (CAT), through the NCDOT Public Transportation Division’s Urban/Regional Bus and 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.

Capital Area Transit was approved the $92,596 as the state match to a FTA Capital Program grant for the purchase of three 40-foot replacement buses. The state funds match $92,596 in local funds and $740,768 in federal funds, totaling $925,960.

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.
