Tahoe Gets Grant Funds For Buses

Sponsored by:

Better bus service is on its way to Lake Tahoe thanks to a grant from the US Transportation Department.

Congressman Jim Gibbons says DOT officials have approved nearly $ 2.5 million in new grants for three projects under the Tahoe Transportation District.

The money was requested a year ago to meet growing transportation needs in the area while minimizing air and water pollution.

Part of the money will be used to purchase five new natural gas-powered transit buses for the north shore of Lake Tahoe.
