Gainesville’s public bus system is getting better, thanks to the direct involvement of Congresswoman Corrine Brown.
A few years ago RTS sought federal dollars to expand its fleet. The request was rejected because the RTS maintenance and operations center was too small to support more buses.
Congresswoman Brown got the money to build the new $39.8 million facility, which is why it was named in her honor.

Building the new facility will help RTS add more buses and hire additional employees to help run the fleet. This project is especially near and dear to the Congresswoman’s heart as she received her graduate degrees at the University of Florida in Gainesville.
