WASHINGTON — The U.S. Department of Transportation announced Thursday that the transit system serving Cleveland County and the University of Oklahoma will get $1.9 million in stimulus money to replace three buses and add two more.

The stimulus bill has provided $3.2 billion in grants so far for U.S. transit improvements, according to the department.

"These funds are creating jobs now while investing in the future of our transit systems," said Peter Rogoff of the Federal Transit Administration. "The public's demand for transit service continues to grow, and these dollars will help meet that need."
