Shelby Announces Over $1 Million for Montgomery

U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.), a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that the Department of Transportation has awarded $1,035,000 to the Montgomery Area Transit System for its buses and bus facilities.

“As concern for rising gas prices grows, public transportation becomes a very attractive option for travel within a community,” said Shelby.  “The Montgomery Area Transit System will use this funding to improve its buses and bus facilities.  This funding will provide an important transportation option for those who live and work in the Montgomery area.”
