DETROIT (AP) — U.S. Sens. Debbie Stabenow and Carl Levin say Detroit’s transportation system is getting a $25.9 million federal grant to help buy 50 new buses.

The Democratic lawmakers said Monday that the grant comes from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Transit Administration.

Levin and Stabenow say the aid is part of the Ladders of Opportunity Initiative Grant program and seeks to help disadvantaged and low-income people, veterans, seniors and young people gain mobility and job opportunities.

Stabenow says “reliable transportation is critical for families who need a safe and dependable way to get to work, school or the doctor’s office.”

Levin says that transportation “is one of the many areas in which Detroit’s rebound is picking up steam.”
