The FTA is partnering with the Joint Energy Transport Authority to provide new technical assistance to transport agencies transitioning fleets from diesel vehicles to low-emission buses and ferries.
Enabled by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Act, the new program will reduce greenhouse gas emissions and transition to battery-electric, hybrid or hydrogen fuel cell technologies that will prepare the transportation workforce with new skills and expertise. Assist with transportation.
This technical assistance is available to transportation agencies and entities receiving or planning to apply for federal funding to expand or transition their fleets with clean, environmentally friendly buses and transportation vehicles. In August 2022, the FTA announced that in his 2022 he will raise more than $1.6 billion in funding to support new technology buses through the Low or No Emissions and Buses and Bus Facilities Program.
The bipartisan infrastructure law calls for cooperation from the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Department of Transportation. Through the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, the Energy and Transport Joint Authority shares resources and guidance with FTA-backed entities seeking to transition their fleets to low- or no-emission transportation vehicles.
- In September 2022, the FTA co-hosted a webinar with the Joint Office to describe a program to help the transportation industry transition from diesel buses to vehicles using low- or no-emission technology.
