Register for FTA Bus Procurement Practices Webinar


FTA is hosting a Recommended Bus Procurement Practices webinar Feb. 29, 2:30 p.m. Eastern.

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law provides substantial new federal funding to help public transit agencies buy buses, but many procurement practices contribute to delays in how buses—particularly zero-emission buses—are designed and procured. This webinar will provide an update on the current U.S. bus market and highlight procurement tools, guidance, and resources recommended by FTA. Presenters will also review flexibilities available to agencies to help lower bus costs and simplify procurements.

FTA issued a Dear Colleague letter announcing a series of actions meant to help strengthen the industry, lower bus costs, and accelerate vehicle deliveries. FTA also created a bus procurement webpage with updated FAQs to assist grantees.

Participants may submit bus procurement-related questions through the registration portal.
