State Mass Transit Projects Will Get $114 Million

Washington agencies will receive $114 million in federal stimulus money for mass transit projects, according to an Associated Press story I don’t see anything for Kitsap or ferries, but I’ll try to find a more complete list if there is one.

Sen. Patty Murray says the grants released Wednesday by the U.S. Department of Transportation include:

$71 million for 60 hybrid buses for King County;

$22 million for Sound Transit bus and rail projects;

$14 million to buy 22 buses for Snohomish County transit;

$2.7 million to expand the Ben Franklin transit base in Richland;

$2.3 million to buy four hybrid buses for Olympia transit;

$1.3 million for the Seattle monorail and south Lake Union trolley.
