NGT News

The Mass Transportation Authority (MTA) in Flint, Mich., says it will expand its “Ride to Groceries” service by deploying nine more propane autogas vans in Genesee County, starting today.

According to the MTA, the Ride To Groceries initiative is a pilot program that services Flint eastside residents through a call-in service and limited-access bus route, enabling greater access to healthy foods and full-service grocery stores in areas that the MTA describes as “food deserts.”
