Schumer Wants More Buses for BC Transit

- U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer is pushing for federal funds to buy more buses for BC Transit.

Schumer wants the Federal Transportation Administration to give Broome County $4 million to purchase ten new diesel buses.

He says the current fleet is aging and many of the buses are past their useful lifespan.

The senator said they would run on a cleaner form of diesel fuel, cutting down on air pollution.

The money would also pay for nine new bicycle shelters throughout the county.
