Up to $55 million in funding available for Low or No Emission transit vehicles

Proterra_1

The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) has announced the availability of $55 million in funding (FTA-2016-003-TPM) under the Low or No Emission (Low-No) Program.

The purpose of the Low-No Program is to encourage transit operators to convert their fleets to the most energy-efficient vehicles. It provides funding to state and local governmental authorities for the purchase or lease of zero-emission and low-emission transit buses, including acquisition, construction, and leasing of required supporting facilities.

All buses proposed for deployment must complete the Federal Transit Administration’s bus testing program, and follow FTA Buy America regulations. Priority is given to tested zero-emission bus models with proven effectiveness (such as Proterra and BYD models already in service in several US cities).

Previous rounds of Low-No funding have supported the purchase of battery-electric and hybrid buses and charging infrastructure in several states.
