RACINE, Wis. (CBS 58) — Town of Racine has been awarded greater than $3 million from the U.S. Division of Transportation’s Federal Transit Administration.
The cash will probably be used to purchase 4 further all-electric buses.
They will exchange 4 2011 diesel buses, which have pushed over 450,000 miles.
The FTA supplies funding by way of a Low or No Emission Car Program.
It will convey the full of all-electric battery powered buses in RYDE Racine’s transit fleet to 13, leading to almost 40% of the system’s fixed-route fleet being zero-emission.
Out of 150 awardees nationwide, Racine is the one recipient in Wisconsin.
