TAPS expected to receive additional funding

GRAYSON COUNTY, TX ― TAPS could be getting more money from the Federal Transit Administration.

Bob Wood, the transportation director with the Texoma Council of Governments, says TCOG receives a grant for $1 million specifically for the transportation needs of Sherman and Denison residents.

Wood says they have decided to give all the grant money over to TAPS for bus maintenance, driver training, and payroll.

"Not only does it serve everyone no matter what your economic class is, it provides public transportation to everyone but also it provides for people with some kind of special needs. Most of our buses are handicapped equipped." metropolitan planning director Bob Wood said.

Approval for the change is expected by Monday.
