Capital Area Transit System to receive over $3 million for new vehicles
BATON ROUGE - The Capital Area Transit System will receive $3,872,089 in federal funds to purchase new electric buses.
The new vehicles will replace older models that have reached their maximum use and are no longer best-suited to current infrastructure needs.
The funds were made possible by a grant from The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) Federal Transit Administration's Low- or No-Emission (Low-No) Grant program.
The Low-or No-Emission program supports cities that purchase vehicles and other infrastructure tools that help sustain the environment, such as zero-emission and low-emission transit buses.
The program will support 41 projects across the nation, including the CATS project in Baton Rouge, by contributing funds that amount to a total of $130 million.
