$1 Billion to Reduce Bus Emissions Promoted by VP

The transportation sector has reached a turning point, she said. 

Vice President Kamala Harris announced a series of new emissions-cutting measures alongside Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg at the White House on Monday. More than $1 billion is intended to reduce public bus emissions this year.  

President Biden’s bipartisan infrastructure law carved out $5.5 billion to expand the Department of Transportation’s Low- and No-Emission Transit Vehicle Program, $1.1 billion of which will be allocated for 2022. The Transportation Department will also direct $2.2 billion in unused American Rescue Plan funding to help 35 transit entities in 18 states keep tens of thousands of employees on the payroll. 

“Our transportation sector has reached a turning point,” Vice President Harris said. “We have the technologies to transition to a zero-emission fleet. Our administration — together, all of us — is working to make that possibility a reality. We can clean our air and protect the health of our children. We can connect all of our communities with affordable, accessible, and reliable public transportation. We can address the climate crisis and grow our economy at the same time, and I’m here today to say together we all are doing just that.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the vice president to seek God’s wisdom as she oversees various administration goals and projects.
  • For Secretary Buttigieg as he manages infrastructure funding and transportation initiatives.
