DSATS FY19-23 TIP Revision 1
DSATS staff submitted a grant for the purchase of replacement buses for much of the VAC fleet. There was a significant savings in the anticipated cost of the purchase of new buses, therefore leaving a large amount of grant funds being unused. Currently there is not a need to buy additional buses. The grant can be revised to other uses, but only for additional buses, or the purchase of support equipment for those buses. City and VAC staff identified the need for additional cameras in the bus fleet and installation of radios in some vehicles which currently do not have them. The remaining funds should be used to install bus destination signs on most of the fleet vehicles. As this transfer of funds between already existing line-item projects, staff processed the TIP modification as an administrative action. The revisions were submitted and approved by the FTA. Not action is needed by the Transit Subcommittee.
