U.S. Senator Kay Hagan today announced an $8 million grant for the Multi-Modal Bus Transfer Center (MMTC) in downtown Fayetteville. The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) awarded the grant through the Bus Livability Program.
"The construction of this transportation center will put North Carolinians back to work and improve the quality of life of residents, which include many active-duty military and veterans," Hagan said. "I am pleased that this grant will help improve Fayetteville's public transportation system. This project is another example of a North Carolina community embracing an innovative transit project that will generate economic development, and I will continue to support investments in infrastructure that strengthen our economy and create jobs."
The new Multimodal Bus Transfer Center will enhance transit and bus connectivity for all routes serving the Center, while also providing easy access to the Amtrak Station located one city block away. The Center also features a highly energy-efficient design.
The Bus Livability Initiative makes funds available to public transportation providers to replace and maintain buses and bus-related facilities.
