Public transit in Cobb County is getting just over $18 million in federal funding to keep services running during the coronavirus pandemic.
In total, a little more than $522 million was made available to Georgia transit operators by the Federal Transit Administration under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, according to a Monday news release from the Georgia Department of Transportation and the Atlanta-Region Transit Link Authority.
The funding was announced Monday by Gov. Brian Kemp, per the news release, which stated almost $371 million of the money was going to the Atlanta “urbanized” area transit operators, including in Cobb. https://www.mdjonline.com/news/cobb-gets-18-million-for-public-transit/article_3850009e-7dba-11ea-8794-57fa1ee04d52.html?fbclid=IwAR16e_LRSZShJyEm4-OSQsaJzTTidAAAzcZ_IbvX9tgdwadbygcJ2luCbtY
