Aspen Times Staff

U.S. Rep. John T. Salazar, D-Colo., has earmarked $300,000 for transportation needs in Snowmass Village over the next four years.The funds are part of roughly $37 million in funding authorized for rural transportation in Colorado. Working on the Transportation Committee, Salazar was able to secure the funding for the state in the Federal Transportation Reauthorization Bill, according to a town press release.The money will be used to replace Snowmass Village’s older buses with new low-floor buses, said Snowmass Village transportation director David Peckler.The money is currently in the authorization process, he said. Getting the money appropriated is the next step.”The shuttle service is a huge amenity for residents and guests alike,” Peckler said. “The funding will go a long way to improving the quality of our service. We are indeed thankful to Congressman Salazar for his assistance.”
