NEWS: Toledo Paratransit Receives Federal Funding for New Buses

TOLEDO, OHIO - July 5, 2011 - A $3.4 million federal grant will give the Toledo Area Regional Transit Authority (TARTA) the opportunity to replace 38 of its aging TARPS Paratransit bus fleet, as well as 5 other small shuttle buses. The Federal Transit Administration's $775 million "State of Good Repair" grant has been established to help transit agencies maintain their fleets in order to meet increasing demand.
