WASHINGTON – One hundred transit projects in tribal communities are set to share $32 million in “Public Transportation on Indian Reservations” funding from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Transit Administration, according to a Dec. 11 release from the department.

The $32 million, of which $17 million will come from the 2009 federal stimulus plan, is scheduled to fund a wide range of projects across Indian reservations, including new buses, vans and other capital equipment and the construction of new transit facilities.
