U.S. Department of Transportation Announces $84 Million Funding Opportunity for Technologically Advanced Transit Buses

FTA today announced the opportunity for its grantees to apply for up to $84.45 million in competitive grant funds through FTA’s Low or No Emission (Low-No) Bus Program. The Low-No Program supports projects sponsored by local transit agencies to bring advanced, American-made bus technologies such as battery electric power and hydrogen fuel cells into service nationwide.

FTA will award the grants to eligible recipients, which include public transit agencies, state transportation departments, and tribes on a competitive basis. Projects will be evaluated by criteria defined in federal law and in the Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO), including the applicant’s demonstration of need; the project’s benefits; project implementation strategy; and capacity for implementing the project. The application deadline is June 18, 2018.
