Albany-- The federal government is writing a nearly four million dollar check for Southwest Georgia's transportation needs.

More than half of that, two million dollars, is for Albany's Multimodal Transportation Center. The center will house bus and rail transportation. Just where the site will be is still unknown.

Interim Transit Director John Capell says, "There are several locations still near the top, so I think the question is which location the facility going to be constructed in. The recommended location is the city parking lot."

This is the site recommended by a city study, the police parking lot behind the courthouse. There have been some environmental concerns however, so it could be located on West Ogelthorpe.

Another one million dollars was allotted for the Regional Transit Demonstration Project in Clay, Quitman, Randolph and Stewart counties. $400,000 dollars was set aside for the Leesburg Transportation Center and another $300,000 dollars for the Moultrie "Streetscape" Project.
