(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The St. Joseph City Council listened to the first reading of a bill that would help fund the purchase of nine buses to help replace half of the aging fleet.

Out of the city's 20 transit buses, 18 are at or over their useful lifespan which is 13 years or 500,000 miles. 

After missing out on federal funding and grants, the transit system is asking the city council to approve purchasing half of the buses needed.

The bus system provides a million and a half rides for people in St. Joseph each year. The city transit office says, if the proposal is accepted, it takes a minimum of 18-months to take delivery on a new bus.

Right now, we are right now under a marginal risk from the Storm Prediction Center for Wednesday night, but most of the severe weather will stay south of Kansas City. We are under a slight risk for severe weather Thursday through Friday and we'll have the possibility of strong to severe storms on Saturday.
