CTE Partners with Six Transit Agencies Thanks to Low-No Program Awards

| June 18, 2020

These awards are critical to transforming America’s transit systems to clean, zero-emission technologies

Center for Transportation and the Environment (CTE) partnered with six winning transit agencies through the Low or No Emission Vehicle Program (Low-No), funded by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA). The agencies CTE supported were awarded a total of 17.3 million dollars. CTE currently helps manage more than 50 Low-No projects for transit agencies of every size across the United States. CTE is a trusted partner on more zero-emission bus deployments than any other organization in the country and is the premier organization for zero-emission bus knowledge and expertise. 

CTE partnered with the following transit agencies on winning FY 2020 Low-No Awards: 

  • Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA), DC
  • Gainesville Regional Transit System, FL
  • Lawrence Transit, KS
  • Metro (St. Louis), MO
  • Salem Area Mass Transit District (Cherriots), OR 
  • Capital Metro (Austin), TX 

CTE also assisted three additional agencies in writing winning proposals. Those agencies were already under contract with CTE to provide technical assistance and project management services.

These awards are critical to transforming America’s transit systems to clean, zero-emission technologies. This year, many of CTE’s partners are transit agencies in predominantly rural areas looking to improve air quality and move toward a zero-emission future for their communities. 

“We are excited to bring new transit agencies into the zero-emission bus arena,” said Dan Raudebaugh, CTE’s Executive Director. “Electric buses are cleaner, quieter, and more efficient than their fossil fuel counterparts. CTE is honored to partner with these transit agencies to ensure successful deployment of their zero-emission buses and achieve the associated health benefits in their communities.”
