WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) today announced two grants totaling over $5 million from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s annual Low and No Emission Vehicle Grant Program. The City of Lawrence will receive $1,815,676 to introduce zero-emission buses into their fleet, and the Kansas City Area Transportation Authority will receive $3,279,828 to continue transitioning its fleet to zero-emission buses and expand their electric charging infrastructure.
“Reliable transportation is a vital component of a city’s infrastructure,” said Sen. Moran. “I’m pleased these grants will help Lawrence and Kansas City further their transit goals, while connecting residents to local businesses and workplaces and students to campus.”
