START adds to electric bus fleet

Teton County’s START Bus has been awarded a Federal Low/No Emission discretionary grant for four additional electric buses. This is the next round of the same award that helped Jackson Hole purchase the 8 electric buses currently in use around the town and county. With these additional 4 Electric buses, the START Board will meet its goal to have 40% of its fleet be zero emissions by 2022. This grant comes from the U.S. Department of Transportation as a part of $182-million to expand low or no emission transit vehicles and facilities across the nation.
