Cache Valley Transit Center Receives CARES Act Grant

U.S Transportation Secretary, Elaine L. Chao, announced Tuesday the Cache Valley Transit Center will be awarded a $5.3 million dollar grant as part of the CARES act. 

The funds will be used to support the bus system, help with maintenance, and aid in more frequent cleanings and PPE for workers in response to the pandemic. 

The federal grants given to transit agencies will aid in helping the millions of Americans who rely on them. 

The Federal Transit Administration has also issued a safety advisory for transit agencies to avoid the spread of the coronavirus which includes face covering, frequent cleanings of the vehicles and social distancing.
