Through the Kansas Department of Transportation federal program funding, SLI was awarded the KDOT 5310 Financial Assistance Transportation Program and the KDOT 5339 Bus Facilities Program to replace four transit lift vehicles with new ones. The need for replacement transit vehicles was due to the cost of repair to aging vehicles with high mileage. The newer models have safer lift systems and are more efficient for SLI clients.
Also, SLI received a grant for vehicle security cameras which will be a tool to ensure clients and employees are safe during transports. The camera improves visibility to protect assets, reduce liability, maximize operational efficiency and, most importantly, enhance safety. The cameras incorporate innovative features such as wireless downloading, real-time remote viewing, GPS mapping, and recording technology to further enhance safety.
