U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood announced $13.4 million in stimulus funding for several small Pennsylvania transit agencies Thursday, including $4.1 million for Western Pennsylvania counties.

Fayette County will get $923,540 toward the engineering, design and construction of a transit center, park and ride, and vehicle storage facility; Cambria County will get $1.3 million to renovate its transit center in Johnstown and purchase a new hybrid bus; and the Erie Metropolitan Transit Authority will get $1.9 million to buy six new buses.

The funding is part of the $8.4 billion included in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act for transit capital and operating assistance. About $3.2 billion worth of transit grants have been awarded since the bill was signed into law Feb. 17.
