Daines Announces Funding to Strengthen Northern Cheyenne Tribe Transit Communications

U.S. SENATE — U.S. Senator Steve Daines today announced that the Northern Cheyenne Tribe will receive $ 40,644.00 to purchase a radio-frequency-based transit communications system. The tribe currently does not have a transit communications system and must use personal cell phones to communicate with one another regarding driver, bus or passenger needs.

“Our transportations systems should not be threatened by bad cell phone service,” said Daines. “These dollars will help ensure members of the Northern Cheyenne Tribe can get to and from work or wherever they need to go safely and efficiently.”
