KCATA receives $4.8 million in funding for low and no emission buses


KANSAS CITY, Mo. — This week, the Kansas City Area Transportation Authority (KCATA) announced it has been approved for multi-million dollar funding to benefit the environment.
Last week, the House and the Senate passed a bill to fund the U.S. Department of Transportation and other federal agencies. That included $4.88 million going to the KCATA for low and no-emission buses and to support infrastructure.
President Joe Biden signed the legislation on Saturday. The funding allows KCATA to buy battery-powered buses and their charging sources along with low-emission buses.
“Through this investment, KCATA will be able to continue our efforts to modernize our bus system, provide riders a smoother trip and reduce impacts on the region’s air quality,” KCATA Chief Executive Officer Frank White III said.
