Green Transportation Capital grants

The Washington State Legislature provided almost $16.5 million for Green Transportation Capital grants (RCW 47.66.120). The grants are provided to transit agencies to fund capital projects to reduce the carbon intensity of the Washington transportation system. Examples include electrification of vehicle fleets, capital facilities to facilitate fleet electrification and/or hydrogen refueling, and upgrades to electrical transmission and distribution systems.
