The Bay Area regional Metropolitan Transportation Commission will distribute more than $90 million of Federal stimulus funds to Santa Clara County transportation projects, reports the Palo Alto Daily News. The biggest chunk of that is $47.5 million going to the Valley Transportation Authority for 107 new hybrid buses, with much of the rest going to highway and road projects. SamTrans will receive $7.9 million to fund operations and 137 new buses. Caltrain will receive $10.4 million for track and infrastructure repairs.
Much more at MTC. I’ll take a look at this in detail myself.
