The Jule Upgrades Fleet with More-Efficient Busses
May 13, 2022
The Jule, Dubuque’s public transportation system, is upgrading its fleet with five new buses.
The new 29-foot heavy duty buses are more accessible to riders, decrease emissions produced, and reduce noise. These buses will be used on The Jule’s fixed-routes and replace aging and high-milage buses. Over 80% of the purchasing costs for the new buses were covered by a Bus and Bus Facilities Grant and a Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Grant awarded to the City by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA).
Two of the new buses and two of the retiring busses will be on display before the next Dubuque City Council meeting. Residents are invited to come tour the buses starting at 5 p.m., Monday, May 16, outside of the Historic Federal Building located at 350 W. Sixth St.
