USA awards grants for electric buses and infrastructure


As part of the Low- or No-Emission (Low-No) Grant program, the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) just announced $84.9 million in grant selections. Through the program, 38 different projects in 38 states will each recieve funding for either fuel cell or battery-electric bus projects and their relevant infrastructure.

In the different projects, the funds are being allocated for the purchase of new vehicles, the purchase and/or installation or upgrading of charging systems. The battery-electric buses that are purchased or leased through these projects are supported by a combination of on-route overhead charging and plug-in depot chargers.

“Since its establishment, FTA’s Low-No program has funded over $300 million in new buses, infrastructure, and training, helping create and maintain American jobs in a fast-growing industry,” said FTA Acting Administrator K. Jane Williams.
