WILMINGTON, Vt. (AP) - The transit agency that serves Vermont's Deerfield Valley is getting a $3 million federal grant to build a new headquarters and maintenance facility in Wilmington.
The grant to benefit the Deerfield Valley Transit Association was announced Wednesday by the three members of the Vermont congressional delegation.
The money will be used to centralize the association's administrative, maintenance, operations and biodiesel production facilities. It also will include maintenance bays, an interior bus wash, a large fuel tank, office space, and parking for 30 vehicles.
The Deerfield Valley Transit Association started service in the Mount Snow area in 1996. It has grown into a 13-route service to eight towns in the Deerfield Valley, providing nearly 300,000 bus and van trips each year.
