Webinar: Bus Fleet Transition Technical Assistance
Sept. 15, 2022
The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and the Joint Office of Energy and Transportation hosted a webinar about new technical assistance being offered to transit agencies and entities receiving—or planning to apply for—federal funds to expand or transition their fleets with clean and green buses. FTA recently announced over $1.6 billion in FY22 funding to support new-technology buses through the Low- and No-Emission Vehicle and Buses and Bus Facilities programs.
Created by President Biden's Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to facilitate collaboration between the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Department of Transportation, the Joint Office of Energy and Transportation will share resources and guidance, through the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, to eligible FTA entities seeking to transition their fleets to low- or no-emission transit vehicles.
This webinar covered how to access technical assistance and included a question-and-answer session to solicit feedback from industry stakeholders on topics of interest in clean fleet conversions.
