Long Beach Transit Receives Award

Long Beach Transit (LBT) was recently awarded a Bus and Bus Facility grant totaling $1,206,518 in federal funds to support the purchase of battery-electric buses (BEBs) and related infrastructure. LBT’s Bus and Bus Facility-funded project will support the replacement of older model, less energy efficient buses with zero-emission BEBs. The deployment of these BEBs will enhance service in several high-density corridors. This funding will assist LBT in furthering its efforts towards an overall goal of becoming 100% alternatively fueled by 2020.
