More than 25-million dollars in federal funding has been awarded to Illinois communities to replace and rehabilitate buses and their facilities.

The funding comes from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Grants for Buses and Bus Facilities Program.

The Illinois Department of Transportation will also receive 8-million dollars, which will be used by the Jackson County Mass Transit District for the construction of an operations-storage-maintenance facility.

The South Central Illinois Mass Transit District will use its portions of the funding to procure bus equipment and facility equipment.
