Sioux City takes on used buses due to limited cash


Used buses are arriving in Sioux City, months after the city's transit system decided to forego new models because of limited federal funding.

The Sioux City Transit System has spent $200,000 to buy four used buses from California.

The buses, which arrive next week, each have about 250,000 miles and they're expected to last seven years.

A bulk of the $4.2 million available from the Federal Transit Administration for bus replacements in Iowa were earmarked for other major cities. Sioux City had to share $931,000.

The agency had 1.1 million riders in the last fiscal year.
