Transpark and WKU Bus Funding in Transportation Bill

Washington, DC/Bowling Green – U-S Senator Mitch McConnell says he has secured
over five million dollars in funding for the Kentucky
TriModal Transpark. The money is included in the
Senate Transportation Appropriations bill, and
will be used to build and improve internal roads
for the business park.

In addition, the legislation includes two and a half
million dollars to replace six buses and one ADA
bus that transport students at Western Kentucky
University.

Senator McConnell, a Republican from Louisville,
is a member of the Appropriations Committee.
The full Senate is expected to approve the Fiscal
Year 2004 Transportation Appropriations conference
report later this week.
