MADISON (WKOW) -- Wisconsin is investing in helping seniors and people with disabilities get around on public transportation, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation announced.

$5.2 million is being awarded to public and private non-profit agencies across the state that focus on mobility management, operating assistance and vehicle purchase.

WisDOT Secretary Craig Thompson said a good transportation system serves everyone and a small-town agency "that can add a couple of minivans" can make a big difference.

Since the mid-1970s, the Enhanced Mobility of Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities Program has bought more than 2,200 vehicle to help seniors and people with disabilities get around.

The funds will go to the cities of Milwaukee, Madison, Appleton and Green Bay, which will then distribute the funds in their area.
