RALEIGH — The N.C. Board of Transportation at their January meeting approved $19,500 in state funding for Community Link of Charlotte through the NCDOT Public Transportation Division’s Intercity Bus Program.

Community Link of Charlotte will use the state funding to provide intercity bus tickets to disadvantaged individuals, domestic violence victims, stranded travelers, individuals with mental illnesses and those displaced by natural disasters to assist with travel needs. These funds match $19,500 in local funds, totaling $39,000.

The Intercity Bus Program supports intercity bus service in underserved areas of North Carolina that connect to the national intercity network. The program also provides state funds for Traveler’s Aid programs that assist homeless, stranded or indigent travelers with their intercity transportation needs through the purchase of bus tickets.

The NCDOT Public Transportation Division awards 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.
