FTA Awards $1.6B in Grants for Low-, No-Emissions Buses

September 20, 2022

Funding for this year alone nearly doubles the number of no-emission transit buses on America’s roadways. For the first time, 5% of low- and no-emission bus funding will be used to train transit workers on how to maintain and operate new clean bus technology. The bus grant awards — made under FTA’s Buses and Bus Facilities and Low- and No-Emission Vehicle programs — are FTA’s first competitive grant selections under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. FTA’s Grants for Buses and Bus Facilities Program supports transit agencies in buying and rehabilitating buses and vans and building bus maintenance facilities. For Fiscal Year 2022, approximately $550 million for grants was available under this program.
