Federal Infrastructure Law is Helping Ohio Transit Agency Transform its Bus Fleet

In America, you can’t just expect things to happen politically, and on the policy front, without keeping your pedal to the proverbial metal. When it comes to sustainability and next-generation mobility, Andy Biesterveld personifies this.

As Chief Engineering and Mechanical Officer of the Central Ohio Transit Authority (COTA), he’s working tirelessly to reshape a fleet for which a federal grant will eventually provide 28 electric buses.

To see what this means to Ohio, check out this new Americans for Transportation Mobility (ATM) Coalition video.

Securing new electric buses for a transit agency that was founded when diesel buses were the trend is a full-circle moment. And it’s yet another example of why the Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Act (IIJA), and the money it is providing, is a bridge to tomorrow.
