Biofuels left behind in major Federal Transit Administration bus grant program

October 3, 2018 |

In Washington, of the $366.2 million in grants awarded last week by the Federal Transit Administration to improve America’s bus systems, only one project associated with biofuels was awarded. The nearly $6.4 million grant was awarded to the New Orleans Regional Transit Authority who will receive funding to expand its biodiesel bus fleet. The project will improve the on-time performance of the system and increase service in key corridors. On the other hand, 15 projects dealing with electric and electric-hybrid buses were awarded nearly $60 million.
