Alert: The following services will be unavailable on Saturday, January 5, 2013 from 12 a.m. (midnight) to 6 a.m. CST due to system maintenance.

Bus and Bus Facilities Program

The Bus and Bus Facilities Program is a federally-funded capital grant program contained within the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) authorization bill that provides capital funding to replace, rehabilitate, and purchase buses and related equipment and to construct bus-related facilities.

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) will award grants to urban systems in both 2013 and 2014 via a competitive process based on evaluation criteria such as consistency with local transit priorities, age and deferred maintenance of vehicles or facilities, and demonstrated commitment of local share. Eligible applicants include public agencies to private nonprofit organizations engaged in public transportation, including those providing services open to a segment of the general public, as defined by age, disability, or low income.

The application process for this program was completed late in 2013. WisDOT will notify systems of the 2014 application process later this year.
