SARTA Using Federal Grant to Buy Electric Coaches, More CNG ProLine Buses

CANTON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – SARTA is the beneficiary of $4.4 million in competitive federal grant money.

And they’re using part of it to help veterans ride more comfortably.

The transit service is buying two electric Greyhound-style coaches with more comfortable seats for the ride to the VA facility in Cleveland.

The funding will also be used to purchase eight smaller compressed-natural-gas buses for its ProLine door-to-door services.

The transit service is so busy now.

It is topping its pre-pandemic numbers.
