Washington, D.C.—"It was announced today that Miami-Dade County is the recipient of $2,357,143.00 for the Low or No Emission Bus and Bus Facilities grant program. This grant, which the County was awarded through a competitive process, will provide our community with funding to purchase or lease zero-emission and low-emission transit buses, as well as acquire and construct facilities to maintain these vehicles. I am pleased the County received this money to provide our residents with energy efficient and modern public transportation to make their lives easier."

"This funding was made available under the FAST Act, which was signed into law in December of 2015. Rep. Curbelo, a champion of this long-term surface transportation legislation, included several South Florida initiatives to make our community safer and provide relief from traffic congestion.
