The Flint Journal is reporting on a story that Michigan Capitol Confidential first carried on June 20 about problems with new buses Flint’s Mass Transit Authority is attempting to obtain.

The city wanted to buy two $1.1 million buses using a federal subsidy, but the company that was going to manufacture the buses went out of business and will not be able to repay a $1.6 million subsidy it received from Michigan taxpayers through the Michigan Economic Development Corp.

The MTA instead now wants to buy hydrogen-fueled buses.
