Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Wm. Lacy Clay (D) Missouri announced today that the U.S. Department of Transportation has awarded Metro (the Bi-State Development Agency) a $5 million competitive grant under the U.S. DOT's Good Repair Program, for bus replacement.

"I want to personally thank President Obama and my good friend and former colleague, U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, for supporting my efforts to increase federal investments in public transportation," said the Congressman."Safe, dependable public transit is absolutely vital to our community. It generates new jobs, it allows transit-dependent employees to get to work, and it helps our environment by taking cars off the street. When we invest in public transit,we create and save good jobs, we clean up the air, and we expand accessfor everyone. This is a big win for our entire community."
