PRTC adds 7 buses to fleet with $10 million grant

Seven commuter buses were recently delivered to the Potomac and Rappahannock Transportation Commission, funded by a $10 million grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation TIGER program.

The new buses, which seat 43 and have low floors for easier boarding, will replace the oldest buses in the fleet. With this addition, PRTC has a total of 13 new buses in operation.

The remaining grant amount, about $4.3 million, has allowed PRTC to buy security cameras for 15 commuter buses and a computer aided dispatch/automated vehicle locator system for the bus fleet. The system, which will allow passengers to receive real-time bus information, is expected to be complete in 2014.
