Cap Metro Plan Continued from pg. 2A + Sparks said in order for Buda to access federal funds for the transpor- tation project, Capital Metro had to enter into the agreement with the city. He added Buda City Planner Meredith John- son worked to secure the grand funds for the city's new senior van, which is ADA accessible. Sparks also said in addition to the new ADA accessible senior van, the grant harbored funds available for additional operating costs, which could mean extended hours of service for the senior transportation program in Buda. According to Cap Metro documentation, the grant will help Buda "improve the transpor- tation services currently provided to seniors and individuals with disabili- ties by purchasing a new ADA accessible van." The new van will not only allow for "service to be safer and more reli- able," but would allow it to be a choice for seniors to get to their destination, according to Capital Met- ro documentation. The service will be free for seniors who participate. The agenda item may have appeared only in the consent agenda due in part to the fact that Buda will not have to spend a dime in order to get it. Buda Mayor Todd Ruge expressed his approval of the grant funds for the new ADA van. He said the old senior transportation van has been in disrepair for quite a while. "This is going to be very welcomed to the seniors in the Buda community," Ruge said, "I think there is potential in the future to have a fleet of ADA accessible vans that will allow us to expand our senior trans- portation services, maybe in the next six months." i j ]i ......
