The Associated Press

PORTLAND, Maine — The Maine Department of Transportation is getting $300,000 for diesel buses for metropolitan bus services in three cities.

U.S. Reps. Mike Michaud and Chellie Pingree say the money from the Federal Transit Administration will be used to lease the buses to the Greater Portland Transit District, the South Portland Bus Service and the Bangor Area Transportation System.

Michaud and Pingree say the buses use a clean fuel and will improve transit options in those communities.
