DOT Announces Funding for Clean Transit Buses

Department seeks to replace aging transit fleets nationwide with electric vehicles.

The Department of Transportation issued a notice of funding opportunity on Friday, announcing nearly $1.7 billion to replace old buses with low- or no-emission clean energy buses and bus facilities. State and local governments may all apply for a number of grants before April 13 to receive funding for the 2023 fiscal year. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law allocated $7.5 billion total to fund these grants from 2021 through 2026, a total of five years. 

“The historic funding opportunity we are announcing today is helping communities across the country purchase new buses, which will cut harmful pollution, and train workers for good-paying jobs,” said Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. “With these new, cleaner buses, Americans will have better options to get where they need to go and people everywhere will benefit from cleaner air.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Buttigieg to seek God’s direction as he heads the Transportation Department.
  • For U.S. transportation officials as they determine the recipients of infrastructure funding.
  • For the president and his administration as they pursue clean energy in public transit.
