BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The federal government has awarded North Dakota more than $900,000 to implement a statewide transportation management system and to buy a handicap accessible bus for the city of Minot.

U.S. Sen. John Hoeven announced the $945,000 grant from the U.S. Transportation Department on Monday. He says the money will help North Dakota officials better maintain transit systems, especially as more people work and live in the state.

North Dakota’s Transportation Department was competitively selected for the grant through a program that aims to maintain the nation’s bus and rail systems.
