SCAT targets grant to buy 3 new vehicles

The Advertiser-Tribune

Seneca County Agency Transportation will purchase three new vehicles with federal grant money awarded Monday.

U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, announced a $124,500 competitive grant was received from the U.S. Department of Transportation's State of Good Repair Program.

"Ohioans who live, work and do business in Seneca County deserve a reliable and affordable public transportation system," Brown stated in a release. "These improvements are an investment in the future of Seneca County and will enhance the services provided by Seneca County Agency Transportation."

SCAT Executive Director Linda Good said she applied for the grant so she could expand upon SCAT's 26-vehicle fleet.

Good said she was surprised to receive the grant money so soon.

"I plan to use the money to purchase one 14-passenger and two 10-passenger buses," she said. "Each bus will have two wheelchair positions."
