Champaign-Urbana Mass Transit District (CUMTD) received ARRA funds to provide the Administration and Operations headquarters with a much needed make-over. A 40-year old HVAC system was replaced with geothermal. The patched and pot-holed parking lot was repaved with permeable pavers that allow ground water to sift through the earth and eliminate puddles of water and salt. And the third project, fixed and replaced the sinking roof with an environmentally friendly white roof!
