U.S. Rep. Charlie Crist has announced that the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority has been granted $19.6 million from the Federal Transit Administration to purchase additional electric buses and charging infrastructure.
Of the funding, $18.4 million comes form an FTA grant that PSTA expects to fund about 14 electric buses and 14 new depot chargers.
Crist also secured an additional $1.2 million in Community Project Funding for PSTA in the government funding bill to support the purchase and installation of on-route chargers for electric buses.
“This is truly a transformative investment in our clean infrastructure,” said Brad Miller, CEO of PSTA.
