P hase 4 of an Amarillo City Commission-approved project is set to begin by mid-January.
Commissioners approved a $479,690 project to improve local bus stops by adding 8 bus stop shelters, as well as 29 bus benches throughout the Amarillo.
Eighty percent of the money that funds the project comes from the Federal Transit Administration. The additional 20% comes from the City of Amarillo general fund.
Amarillo City Transit has yet to determine a completion date for the project. They say the construction of the new additions will depend largely on the weather during the time of the project.
