Application Authorized for Electric Bus Funding

Tuesday, October 2, 2018

The Legislature, without dissent, took the procedural step necessary to access grant funds awarded to Tompkins Consolidated Area Transit (TCAT) to acquire three electric transit buses and related equipment.  Legislators authorized application for the nearly $2.3 million awarded to TCAT under the Federal Transit Administration’s competitive Low and No-emission Electric Transit Bus Program.  The total project budget is more than $2.8 million, with a nearly $575,000 share from TCAT.  The County needs to apply for the funds to obligate them for the federal 2019 fiscal year.
