County Presents Keys to New Passenger Busses to Monroe & Woodbury Tomorrow
(West Deptford, NJ) – Gloucester County Freeholder Director Robert M. Damminger, Freeholder Adam Taliaferro and Freeholder Lyman Barnes presented the keys to new 22-passenger busses today to officials from Woodbury and Monroe Township.
The busses, a 50% dollar match with the municipalities, are funded through the County's Capital Transit Investment Plan (CTIP). The county funded $37,013 each for these busses and each municipality funded the remaining $37,013 for their bus.
The Gloucester County Board of Chosen Freeholders instituted the Capital Transit Investment Plan (CTIP) in 1992 to assist municipalities with the purchase of new buses. CTIP provides county funds to municipalities for the purpose of providing transportation to senior citizens, persons with disabilities as well as the general public.
Freeholder Adam Taliaferro, Liaison to Transportation Services, said, "These busses provide our residents with valuable transportation to doctor’s appointments, shopping and allows them to remain active members of our community."
