ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - A federal Transportation grant of nearly $870,000 will be used to buy three new buses to help increase service between Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti in Washtenaw County.

The 40-foot expansion buses will be used along the Washtenaw Avenue corridor.

The grant was announced Thursday by U.S. Sens. Carl Levin and Debbie Stabenow. It is the final installment of $2.6 million awarded to the Ann Arbor Transportation Authority’s Re-Imagine Washtenaw project.

Clean diesel buses with hybrid-electric components were purchased as part of the project. The balance of the award announced in 2011 is being used to buy the three new buses.
