CTA Gets $1.5 Million Grant

The Biloxi-Gulfport Transit Authority has been awarded a $1.5 million federal grant for its capital improvement program, U.S. Rep. Gene Taylor, D-Miss., said Friday.

The U.S. Department of Transportation funds will be used for preventative maintenance costs and the purchase of equipment for transit authority's multimodal center and hybrid electric shuttle bus service, said Taylor.

The funds will also be used to rehabilitate the bus maintenance facility and parking lot.

"Because of our growth on the Gulf Coast, public transportation is more important than ever to help alleviate our traffic problems,'' Taylor said.
