LeeTran wins $13.9 million federal competitive grant for bus replacements

Congratulations to Lee County government! Today the US Secretary of Transportation announced grants awards worth a total of $930 million for 300 transit projects as part of the Federal Transit Administration's national competitive grant program for transit upgrades, such as replacing older buses with hybrids. LeeTran was awarded $13.9 million for bus replacements. They received the largest grant in Florida and it was one of the largest grant amounts awarded nationwide, except for grants to a State DOT or a major city like Chicago. This is great news for LeeTran.
