MOUNTAIN LINE SECURES $16.3 MILLION FEDERAL GRANT FOR MAINTENANCE FACILITY
FLAGSTAFF, AZ (June 28, 2023) –
The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) announced Monday that Mountain Line will receive $16.3 million through the Bus and Bus Facilities Grant to build a new maintenance facility.
Mountain Line’s grant was one of 130 awards totaling nearly $1.7 billion from President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law for transit projects in 46 states and territories.
Mountain Line is currently using a separate FTA Bus and Bus Facilities Grant award for the
construction of the new Downtown Connection Center. When that facility opens and Mountain Line’s
administrative and customer service teams relocate, the current space in the Kaspar Dr. facility will
be repurposed to better meet the agency’s fleet and maintenance needs. The new facility will
improve and expand maintenance capabilities, and create the capacity for Mountain Line’s
transition to a zero-emission fleet.
“We appreciate U.S. Sens. Kyrsten Sinema and Mark Kelly, and Arizona Reps. David Cook and Mae Peshlakai for their leadership and support of our grant application,” said Mountain Line CEO and General Manager Heather Dalmolin. “Mountain Line proudly services and maintains our entire fleet and this new facility will allow our team to effectively take care of our vehicles now and as we grow into the future.”
