The latest award is for $4 million, which is enough to buy a dozen buses that more cleanly burn diesel fuel.</p><p>Previously, a grant was used to order 27 new buses, eleven of them hybrids.</p><p>In all, there are 210 buses in TARC&#39;s fleet. The new vehicles will be on the street next year.</p> Wed, 01 Aug 2012 21:00:00 +0000 Gabe Bullard 1188 at http://wfpl.org TARC Gets Federal Grant for New Buses Some TARC Routes Spared From Cuts http://wfpl.org/post/some-tarc-routes-spared-cuts <p>The Transit Authority of River City&rsquo;s Board of Directors has approved <a href="http://www.ridetarc.org/">several service reductions</a> that will take effect in August, but the cuts are not as steep as originally proposed.</p><p>Under a plan approved by the board today, half of the cuts proposed two months ago will be spared, due to lower than estimated diesel fuel costs,&nbsp; a boost in occupational tax revenue in May and in response to public input.&nbsp;&nbsp;TARC gets much of its funding from the occupational tax.</p> Mon, 25 Jun 2012 20:53:14 +0000 Rick Howlett 785 at http://wfpl.org Some TARC Routes Spared From Cuts
