Transportation agencies around and near the South Sound are among beneficiaries to approximately $230 million in newly awarded state and federal grants.

Grays Harbor Transit was a beneficiary of one of the largest monetary awards: $2,085,120 to replace some of its fleet of 35-foot long buses.

Intercity Transit, which serves Thurston County, also received a sizeable sum, including $885,000 to replace 40 vanpool vehicles.

Pierce Transit, City of Tacoma, Mason County Transportation Authority and Thurston Regional Planning Council also received funds.

Overall, more than 80 agencies statewide received awards through the Washington State Department of Transportation’s Consolidated, Regional Mobility, Formula, Vanpool and Connected Washington grant programs.

“It is so important that all citizens have the opportunity to remain active and connect with their communities. No matter their age, income or physical ability, access to reliable transportation makes that possible,” said WSDOT Public Transportation Division Director Brian Lagerberg. “These grants give local providers the ability to serve the people who need transportation options the most.”
