ANAHEIM, Calif. (October 17, 2022) – The Anaheim Transportation Network (ATN) has been awarded a $1.3 Million appropriation through the office of California Assemblyman Phillip Chen. The funding is dedicated to help build a state-of-the-art electric bus charging and maintenance facility in central Orange County.
“This investment will help ATN build the first all-electric bus charging and maintenance facility in the region. We are looking forward to connecting residents, visitors, and employees throughout the region with an all-electric fleet,” stated Diana Kotler, ATN Executive Director. “We are grateful for the continued support of our elected leaders, who continuously find ways to support ATN and the growth and reliability of our zero-emission fleet.”
Assemblyman Chen was joined by United States Congressman Lou Correa, Anaheim City Councilman Stephen Faessel, Anaheim City Councilwoman Gloria Ma’ae and community stakeholders for a check presentation at the Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center (ARTIC) last week. The appropriation from the State of California will go directly to enhancing the transportation infrastructure needed to support ATN’s clean energy fleet, which provides public transportation to 10 million passengers annually.
