Federal grant invests in low and no-emission busses and other vehicles, expanding transit services in Salt River
WASHINGTON – Arizona Senators Kyrsten Sinema and Mark Kelly announced that the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community was awarded over $610,000 in federal grant resources investing in expanded transit options, including low and no-emission busses.
“These resources for innovative and energy-efficient buses will boost local economic opportunities and support jobs in the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community,” said Sinema.
“This investment will support the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community’s efforts to create sustainable transportation that connects the community to jobs and services by replacing older diesel buses with new, low-emission vehicles,” said Kelly.
The $611,840 grant supports the Community in purchasing or leasing low and no-emission busses and other transit vehicles that use advanced technologies, such as battery electric and fuel-cell power, to provide cleaner, more energy-efficient transit services in the Community.
