CALSTART for a Free Webinar January 24: Best Practices
for Deploying Low- or No-Emission Buses
Transit Administration (FTA) is hosting a free webinar Tuesday,
January 24, on Best Practices for Deploying Low- or No-Emission
Buses. CALSTART will provide an overview of the low- or no-emission
bus industry, focusing on battery electric buses. The webinar also
will feature a panel of representatives from agencies that have been
successful in deploying zero-emission buses, including recipients of
the FTA's Low-No grants.
Agencies interested in low- or no-emission buses will receive
guidance on how to go from development to deployment. Please note

acquisition, construction and leasing of required supporting
facilities. Under the FAST Act, $55 million per year is available
