Transportation Department Allocates $27.5 Million To Replace The Shuttle Buses At The Grand Canyon

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration announced Thursday that it will grant the National Park Service $27.5 million to replace shuttle buses around the Grand Canyon. The Shuttle Bus Fleet Replacement project includes 30 new buses, ten of which are electric and 20 compressed natural gas buses. Arizona Congressman Raúl Grijalva said, “To practice responsible stewardship of the Grand Canyon National Park, we must lead by example in the fight against climate change.”  The grant is the first critical investment to update the Grand Canyon’s aging transportation infrastructure to be more sustainable and will support NPS’ climate action plan to lower our carbon emissions.” The grant is part of the Biden-Harris Administration’s Investing in America plan, which aims to invest in rebuilding infrastructure while creating clean energy. Six other projects have also received grants, totaling $130.5 million toward transportation in federal and tribal lands.
