A state of the art transportation hub in New Bedford and the Route 28x bus rapid transit project are two of four federal stimulus grant applications announced by the Patrick Administration's Office of Infrastructure Investment.

The proposals submitted to the U.S. Department of Transportation include two submitted by the Executive Office of Transportation: 

  • A $71.4 million proposal to construct the New Bedford Whale’s Tooth intermodal transportation center to integrate local bus services and shuttles, the Fast Ferry service to Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard, and regional passenger rail. The Whale’s Tooth intermodal transportation center represents the first phase of the highly anticipated $1.4 billion South Coast Rail project.
  • A $146.5 million proposal for the 28X rapid transit project in Mattapan, providing significant improvements on the No. 28 bus route along Blue Hill Avenue, such as off-board fare collection systems, and passenger warming stations, to increase efficiency and offer a new level of reliability and service where many residents rely solely on public transit.
