Federal Transit Grants - The Low or No Emission Bus Program

Thirty-seven million metric tons of CO2 emissions annually! That is how much would be saved if Washington, DC, New York City, Atlanta, Denver and Los Angeles stopped using electricity! While that is not likely to happen anytime soon, according to the American Public Transportation Association, 37 million metric tons of CO2 emissions is also the amount public transportation saves us each year. While that is an impressive statistic, The Federal Transit Administration is offering a Low or No Emission Bus Grant Program to help our transit system do even better; this program's ambitious objective is to turn our bus fleet into the greenest and cleanest in the world.

Infrastructure Grants - The ATCMTD

6.9 billion hours! That is the amount of time Americans spend stuck in traffic, according to a 2014 study by Texas A&M Transportation Institute and INRIX. That translates into $690 a year in wasted fuel for the average driver. Of course, not everyone is trapped in commuter gridlock. Times vary by location. No matter where live, however, we all appreciate infrastructure improvements. Part of the FAST Act, the Advanced Transportation and Congestion Management Technologies Deployment (ATCMTD) Initiative is providing grants to make US travel safer and more efficient for everyone.
