$17.9 Million in Recovery Act Funds Awarded to Rural Transit Providers Across Tennessee
NASHVILLE – Governor Phil Bredesen announced today that $17.9 million in Recovery Act funds will be provided to 12 rural transit agencies in Tennessee. The agencies provide transit services to all 95 counties in Tennessee.
“Many Tennesseans, particularly those with limited mobility, already rely on public transportation for their daily needs and many others would like to see expanded transit options,” said Bredesen. “The Recovery Act funds announced today will help rural transit providers in Tennessee improve service and replace aging fleets with safer, more reliable vehicles.”
