Jacksonville Gets Stimulus Money For Buses

Two North Carolina cities, including one here in the east, have been awarded 3.6 million dollars for transit improvements.

The U.S. Department of Transportation says the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act will help fund projects in the cities of Jacksonville and Gastonia.

Jacksonville was awarded $1.5 million for five 28-foot buses and a parking facility, a bus wash and fare stations.

The Recovery and Reinvestment Act has awarded more than $5 billion in grants for transit improvements around the country.
