The Corpus Christi Regional Transportation Authority has been awarded $7.2 million.

U.S. Senator John Cornyrn announced the massive federal grant today via his Deputy Press Secretary, Jeff Guittard.

“This grant will not only change the landscape of Corpus Christi, but will significantly impact the quality of public transportation for generation to come,” said Jorge Cruz-Aedo, CCRTA Chief Executive officer.

The competitive grant was submitted by the CCRTA and will fund the Port Ayers Transfer station, two transit stops at Del Mar College Southside’s campus, and the reconstruction of the CCRTA Operations Center’s parking lots.

The exact amount of money awarded according to Grant 5339(b) is $7,231,023.
