Harbor Transit Muti-Modal Transportation System is receiving over $16 million from the federal government.

Harbor Transit serves Grand Haven, Grand Haven Township, Spring Lake, Spring Lake Township, and Ferrysburg, and will use the grant to design and construct a new operations center as it transitions into a zero-emissions fleet.

According to Harbor Transit’s website, two parcels of land in Grand Haven Township have already been purchased for the new operations center.

Upgrades to the system will feature fueling and charging equipment, vehicle maintenance infrastructure, and electric vans and charging stations. It will also accommodate administration and workforce training facilities for regional transit providers.

According to a release from the office of U.S. Representative Hilary Scholten, the grant is part of the Federal Transit Administration’s Bus and Bus Facilities Grant Program, which announced nearly $1.5 billion in funding for 117 projects across the country.
