Racine obtains an additional $3.8 million for 4 all-electric battery-powered buses

RACINE, Wis. (CBS 58) — The city of Racine has received more than $3 million from the Federal Transit Administration of the U.S. Department of Transportation.

The money will be used to buy four additional fully electric buses.

They will replace four 2011 diesel buses, which have done more than 450,000 miles.

The FTA provides funding through a low- or zero-emission vehicle program.

This will bring the total number of all-electric, battery-powered buses in RYDE Racine’s transit fleet to 13, bringing nearly 40% of the system’s fixed-route fleet to zero emissions.

Of 150 honorees nationwide, Racine is the only recipient from Wisconsin.
