$4.1 Million approved for new busses

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Your city could soon get a new Omnibus.

The Iowa Transportation Commission approved 4.1 million dollars to buy replacement vehicles for 13 state transit systems.

The federal funds mean 40 of the oldest vehicles will be able to be retired.

The agency prioritizes based on age and mileage of the vehicle.

3.4 million dollars comes from the 2010 Omnibus Appropriations recently approved by Congress, and the remaining 700-thousand dollars comes from reserve funds.
