The FTA recently announced two discretionary opportunities to apply for capital funding assistance. The first is a nationwide competitive 5339 program ($211 million available) for buses and bus facilities. The second is for the Low and No Emissions (aka LoNo - $55 million available) vehicle program. Funds awarded for the 5339 program will finance capital projects to replace, rehabilitate, purchase or lease buses and related equipment and to rehabilitate, purchase, construct or lease bus-related facilities. The LoNo program provides funding to State and local governmental authorities for the purchase or lease of zero-emission and low-emission transit buses.
CDOT is planning on submitting a statewide application for both programs. Please refer to the email send out by David Averill on April 5, 2016 or you can reach him by email at
