WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (Kan.) today announced a $3,279,655 Federal Transit Administration grant for the City of Lawrence. These resources, provided through the FY2022 Low-No Emission Grant Program, will be used to fund the Electrify Lawrence Transit: Phase 3 project, assisting Lawrence’s acquisition of Low or No Emission Transit vehicles and supporting facilities.

“These resources will help expand and upgrade Lawrence Transit’s bus fleet and support a healthy environment for the Lawrence community,” said Sen. Moran. “These federal resources will also assist the City of Lawrence in its goals of sustainability and improve the quality of fixed route transit for the community.”

Sen. Moran previously offered support for the City of Lawrence’s Electrify Lawrence project during its past phases, including sending a letter of support to the Federal Transit Administration for the grant application submitted by the City of Lawrence in 2020.
