RALEIGH — Federal officials announced that two North Carolina cities have been awarded $3.6 million for transit improvements.

The U.S. Department of Transportation said Thursday the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act will help fund projects in the cities of Jacksonville and Gastonia.

Jacksonville was awarded $1.5 million for five 28-foot buses and a parking facility. Gastonia will get $2.1 million to buy five 35-foot clean diesel buses.

Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said the recovery act has awarded more than $5 billion in grants for transit improvements around the country.
