FTA Gives Consortium $9 Million for Hydrogen-Fueled Buses
A business consortium including New Flyer Industries, ISE Corporation and SunLine Transit announced (via Fuel Cell Works) that it will receive $9 million from the United States Federal Transit Administration for two new projects involving hydrogen and fuel-cell buses.
The initiatives include $6 million in FTA funding to develop a hydrogen fuel-cell electric bus for Washington, D.C. This project will be done in conjunction with ISE, a California company that makes hybrid engines.
In addition, the two companies, along with SunLine Transit, received $3 million to develop advanced fuel-cell buses for Thousand Palms, Calif.
To date, Canada’s New Flyer Industries has put more than 2,200 buses on the roads of California including those in San Diego and Los Angeles.
