Introduction from the Executive Director:
Welcome to Advance Transit’s (AT) web page dedicated to our American Recovery & Reinvestment Act (ARRA) projects. Our goal at AT is to ensure that our customers and the Upper Valley region receive maximum benefit from the ARRA funds that have been allocated to our program.
On June 3, 2009 Advance Transit was notified by the New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) that our organization had been awarded a $1,529,000 contract in support of our Transit Capital Assistance Program. This award is based on an award to the State of New Hampshire by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) from their apportionment of American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funds and our previous requests for these funds.
These ARRA funds will be utilized to expand and improve our bus maintenance facility in support of the Upper Valley region’s public transit system, helping sustain and/or create jobs on a local, regional and national level.
More recently, additional ARRA funding has been made available to Advance Transit through the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) to purchase two new transit buses.
