Federal Money Enables New Electric Buses To Come To Region

The Federal Transit Administration has announced nearly 60-million-dollars in funding to help three public transit agencies in Massachusetts finance new fleets of electric and hybrid-electric buses.

The Cape Regional Transit Authority will receive a grant of 14-point-6-million-dollars and the Vineyard Transit Authority will receive 3-point-8-million-dollars.

Around 40-million-dollars will be used to purchase battery-electric buses to be stationed in the new Quincy Bus Maintenance Facility when it's completed.

Senator Ed Markey says by securing these federal investments, Massachusetts is taking a big step towards a zero-emission transportation system across the state.
