Dubuque to Replace City Buses

Dubuque’s transportation department says it needs to replace buses with bad engines that are at risk of breaking down. The Jule has nine medium sized buses that are having engine problems. At its’ meeting on Monday the city council approved staff to send out proposals to potential bidders. The buses will cost around 1.8 million dollars, but a federal transit administration grant will cover 85 percent of the costs. Taxpayers will end up covering 270-thousand dollars. The city hopes to receive the buses by April of next year.
