COTA gets $300K for service study of Cleveland Ave

Columbus Business First

The Central Ohio Transit Authority has landed $300,000 from the federal government to study ways to improve service along Cleveland Avenue in Columbus.

 The bus system got the grant from the Federal Transit Administration, which awarded $25.7 million to transit agencies in 15 states as part of its Alternative Analysis program. The agency said the program is part of a new capital-planning effort that asks regional governments to conduct an “alternatives analysis” of various costs and benefits, route options and other factors in their communities.

 “These grants will help communities explore how they can benefit from transit,” U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said in a news release. “It’s an exciting and important initial step in the planning process that helps ensure federal funding aligns with local and regional transportation priorities.”
