US senator for Nebraska Deb Fischer confirmed the city of Lincoln will receive a $2.6 million grant to update its buses and related infrastructure.
Fischer, a member of the Senate Commerce Committee, says the grant will help the city “improve and update its transit system, ensuring residents can travel places more safely and efficiently”.
The city will use the grant to purchase electric buses, charging stations and other infrastructure.
The grant is being provided by the Federal Transit Administration’s Low- or No-Emission Vehicle Programme, which offers funding for the purchase or lease of zero-emission or low-emission buses.
