Omaha, NE

Rail Transit Online, November 2001

A long-awaited $792,550 FTA grant to Metro Area Transit has been confirmed. The City of Omaha will add $200,000 to the federal contribution. The money will fund a transportation study that will include the feasibility of building an electric streetcar line in the eastern part of the city. Also to be evaluated is a trial hub-and-spoke system in which small neighborhood feeder buses would shuttle riders to central transit stations served by express buses.
