Muni, BART land cash for capital improvements 

The San Francisco Municipal Railway will receive $18.2 million to rebuild and perform preventive maintenance on light rail vehicles, and BART will get $17 million for railcar and station equipment improvements, part of $83.9 million in transit stimulus funds granted California agencies.

Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said Friday that the Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board will get $2.7 million for the San Mateo bridges project, and the Golden Gate Bridge Highway and Transportation Department will get $2.4 million to replace bus wash equipment.

The Muni award was the largest. Other transit agencies also received money.

In a statement, Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-California, said, "These critical investments will put Californians to work on transit projects that will ease congestion, improve air quality and speed Californians on their way to work and school."
