Richland County Transit held a a ribbon cutting ceremony on Monday, after recently receiving 5 new buses.
RCT Fiscal Officer Kathy Adams says the buses will hit the street beginning on Tuesday. The new buses are smaller and better on gas and Adams told RichlandSource.com that they are transitioning away from the larger buses. There are 3 routes that still have the larger buses and they are Park Ave, Lexington Ave and West 4th St.
This now brings the RCT fleet to 18 buses. The new buses are 100% funded by the Federal Transit Administration.
