ATN’s #ElectrifyAnaheim Program Awarded $28.6 Million in Grant Funding
As part of its #ElectrifyAnaheim program, the Anaheim Transportation Network (ATN) has been awarded $28.6 million in grant funds from the California State Transportation Agency (CalSTA) through its Transit Intercity Rail Capital Program (TIRCP).
The funds will be used toward the purchase of 40 all-electric zero emission buses to serve ATN’s growing ridership and replace its aging Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) buses. The grant will also fund the acquisition of 10 small-capacity all-electric vehicles as part of ATN’s proposed on-demand e-hailing MicroTransit program in the CtrCity Anaheim downtown corridor. To accommodate the new fleet of vehicles, the grant also provides funding toward a new solar-powered maintenance facility.
#ElectrifyAnaheim was one of 28 projects statewide to receive funding in an effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by improving connectivity between rail and transit services.
