Sunflower Diversified receives $1 million+ from KDOT

From the Kansas Department of Transportation...


More than $7.4 million has been award to 33 transit projects across the state that have been selected as part of the Kansas Department of Transportation’s new Access, Innovation, and Collaboration program.


The projects were announced at the statewide Transit Day news conference at the Capitol.

“Transportation is the supporting fiber of our lives – and too often – we assume that always means driving a car,” said KDOT Deputy Secretary Maggie Doll. “But thousands of Kansans do not have access to a car, are unable to drive or would prefer not to. That’s why I’m pleased that our new transportation program, FORWARD, retains the annual funding commitments to all modes of transportation including transit, bicycle and pedestrian paths, aviation and rail.”


More than 10 million urban and rural transit rides are provided annually across the state. This program will ultimately improve transit access and services for transit users in Kansas.


“Currently, we have transit services in more than 90 counties. That is growing, and we need to keep it growing,” said Rep. Richard Proehl. “Quality transit services are important for the health of citizens and for our economy.”
