The Federal Transit Administration has awarded a $1.5 million competitive grant to help with projects such as trails and shuttle systems on public lands across the country.
The UVM TRC will partner with the Western Transportation Institute at Montana State University to use the grant to develop the National Technical Assistance Center for Alternative Transportation in Public Lands. Managers at the country’s national parks, forests and recreation sites will work with the center to start or expand transportation projects, including trails, shuttles, information systems and traffic management improvements.
