ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Three New Mexico pueblos are getting money to improve transit services.

U.S. Senators Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich announced Wednesday that the Isleta, Jemez and Santa Ana pueblos are getting $307,770 from the Federal Transit Administration to improve public transportation.

The Pueblo of Jemez is getting money to buy a bus and begin the Jemez Flex-Ride Coordinated Transportation System. The Pueblo of Santa Ana is getting funding to replace an old bus, while the Pueblo of Isleta’s grant will fund a study to identify needs surrounding a potential transit service.

Udall says the services are needed to help people get to work, school, and doctors’ appointments.
