Samuel Farr announced that the Santa Cruz Metropolitan Transit District would receive $3,810,348 from the Federal Transit Administration. The funding will be used to purchase 3 zero-emission electric buses to operate on the popular Hwy seventeen Express routes connecting Santa Cruz and Silicon Valley. The grant also includes funding for inductive charging stations.

The grants allow agencies to acquire buses and supporting facilities and infrastructure such as maintenance facilities and recharging equipment – including whole new “en-route” charging that extends battery life.
