Santa Fe to get nearly $2 million for new buses

The city of Santa Fe will get nearly $2 million in federal money to replace older buses with ones that are more energy efficient.

The city will use the $1.92 million award to replace buses in its fleet that have met or exceeded their useful lives with CNG (compressed natural gas) buses that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

According to a release from the city of Santa Fe, the project was selected on a competitive basis through the federal State of Good Repair Program.

It is part of the U.S. Department of Transportation's effort to modernize and replace aging transit facilities and vehicles in order to meet the growing demand from millions of riders across the country.​
