The U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Federal Transit Administration (FTA) announces the selection of projects funded in support of the Transit Investments for Greenhouse Gas and Energy Reduction (TIGGER) program and Clean Fuels Grant program which is enhanced with Section 5309 Bus and Bus Facilities program funds. This funding supports the U.S. DOT’s environmental sustainability efforts, which were announced in FTA’s notice of funding availability (NOFA) on April 13, 2010.

The TIGGER program makes funds available for capital investments that will reduce the energy consumption or greenhouse gas emissions of public transportation systems. The Clean Fuels Grant program makes funds available to assist nonattainment and maintenance areas in achieving or maintaining the National Ambient Air Quality Standards for ozone and carbon monoxide and supports emerging clean fuel and advanced propulsion technologies for transit buses and markets for those technologies.
