Quincy takes steps to extend life of aging transit system


Quincy city officials are taking steps to extend the life of its aging public bus transportation system.

Central Services Director Marty Stegeman says thanks to a $175,000 grant from the state, the back half of the Quincy Regional Training Facility will be revamped to house a new automated bus wash. Stegeman says the new wash will recycle about 95 percent of water used, which will save the city both money and manpower that has been cut over the years.

"It'll improve our appearance obviously, but it'll also improve the longevity of the vehicles they have an undercarriage wash system included in this so that it will take away the salt and grime from the road during the winter," Stegeman said.

Stegeman hopes to have approval from the state to start the project and bids out to contractors by the end of the summer.
