Ohio to award operating funds to state transit agencies


The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) recently announced it will provide $150 million during the next three years, or $50 million annually, for Ohio transit agencies.

Under the 21st Century Transit Partnerships for Ohio’s Next Generation program, the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority will receive $5.4 million in fiscal-year 2011 to preserve existing transit services that otherwise would have been cut or to add necessary service. The authority will receive $5.4 million in both FY2012 and FY2013, as well.

The program also includes $15 million per year for Clean and Green Transit Vehicles and $10 million annually for New Service Starts funds. ODOT will accept applications for the two programs and determine which agencies will receive them during the next three years.
