City receives $3 million grant for new electric buses

Iowa CityThe City of Iowa City Transportation Department has received a $3,017,280 grant from the US Department of Transportation (USDOT) in order to acquire new electric buses. 

The grant, which was announced on Tuesday, June 2, 2020, means that the City will be able to replace some diesel buses that are currently in use throughout the community. 

The grant Iowa City received is just one of the 41 projects that received a total of $130 million from the USDOT's Low- or No- Emission Grant program, which funds the deployment of transit buses and infrastructure for the purchase or lease of zero-emission and low-emission transit buses and supporting facilities.

The City plans to use the money to acquire both electric buses and the infrastructure needed to support them.
