Last week, Montgomery Mayor Steven L. Reed joined local leaders, public transportation advocates and members of The M Transit System team for the institution of a new micro-transit shuttle system, which includes 11 new vehicles to the M fleet. The group also celebrated the addition of 11 new vehicles to the M fleet.
“A more reliable transit system is necessary to reach our goal of expanding access to critical resources and services for all Montgomery residents,” Mayor Reed said.
Here are the new additions to the M Transit System that was announced by the group.
- Five 26-passenger buses
- Two 20-passenger buses
- Three microtransit executive-style shuttles.
- The shuttles are accessible online, by app and by phone
- A new route transports commuters from downtown Montgomery to the Montgomery Regional Airport.
The micro-transit transportation system is funded by the CARES Act. Montgomery received $6.5 million in funding to finance the projects from the federal law.
“We look forward to continuing to build a better, more efficient and service-oriented system that tracks with our vision of what Montgomery can be,” concluded Mayor Reed in a statement sent to the Bama Buzz.
