California agencies get millions in federal grants for cleaner buses

The Obama administration announced more than $8 million in grants to California transit agencies in an effort to get diesel buses off the streets.

The grants, which include $2.4 million for the Riverside Transit Agency for new compressed natural gas buses, are among 27 such awards handed out nationwide.

“President Obama is committed to investing in sustainable transportation systems that improve access to jobs, education and medical care for millions of riders, while bringing cleaner air to our communities and reducing our dependence on oil,” said Ray LaHood, the federal Transportation Agency secretary. “These projects will also help transit agencies operate more efficiently, and save money in the long run.”
