Aug. 29, 2022
The U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Transit Administration (FTA) announced $1.66 billion in grants to transit agencies,territories, and states across the country for investments in 150 bus fleets and facilities. Funded by the President's Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), the majority of the funded projects will use zero-emissions technology. Five percent of the funding will go toward training transit workers to maintain and operate new clean bus technology. Entities currently receiving or planning to apply for funds via FTA’s Low- or No-Emission Vehicle Program, or other FTA programs, can contact the Joint Office for technical assistance to plan for and deploy clean transit buses.
