The Manchester Transit Authority has received a million dollars from the federal Department of Transportation to replace four buses in their fleet.

The useful lifespan of a bus is about a decade. The three full-size buses that'll be replaced have been running since 2006.

The MTA will also purchase a new para-transit bus that includes a low floor ramp instead of stairs.

This para-transit bus will complete the city’s fleet, and the city will get the new buses in 2019.
