The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) announced yesterday the award of competitive bus and streetcar grants. One was in Nevada! In total, $293M was awarded nationwide, though grant applications totaled $2B. There is a high demand for these intelligent projects which support the Obama administration’s livability initiative.
Project: UNLV Transit Center (Bus and Bus Livability)
Sponsor: Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada
The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada will construct a transit center on a little more than an acre of land located on the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) campus. This transit hub will complement current transit services and future improvements including new regional transit routes, on-campus shuttle service, transit oriented development, and a parking structure, improving accessibility for students, faculty, staff and visitors.
