UCHRA Recipient Of $90K TDOT Grant For Public Transportation

TDOT has selected UCHRA as the recipient of a $90,000 grant under the IMPROVE Transit Investment Grant Program.

UCHRA Public Transportation Director Holly Montooth said that the money will be used to purchase two electric vehicles and the charging infrastructure needed to charge them. She said that the addition of these vehicles will be the first step into learning how to incorporate them into the program.

Montooth said that an investment of this nature will help to not only cut down on operational costs but also have a smaller environmental impact.
