FTA Sustainable Transit for a Healthy Planet Challenge Deadline Extended


FTA has extended the deadline to submit sustainability, climate action, electrification, or zero-emission transition plans for its Sustainable Transit for a Healthy Planet Climate Challenge to March 15. Submitted plansnew, existing, or updated—are eligible for recognition during FTA’s Earth Day event scheduled for April.

Almost 230 public transit agencies have signed up to the challenge, with many of those submitting plans outlining measures to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Plans cover such strategies as converting fleets to electric buses, making facilities more energy efficient, and generating power through renewable energy sources. Challenge participants can receive technical assistance from FTA in developing their plans and strategies to further reduce GHG emissions.
