Expanding Transit Services and Introducing Zero-Emission Fleets on the North Coast
The Humboldt Transit Authority (HTA) has been awarded a $38.7M grant from the California State Transportation Agency’s Transit and Intercity Rail Capital Program that will launch HTA’s transition to a zero-emission fleet. HTA and project partners will procure 11 new zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell electric buses (FCEBs), design and install a hydrogen fueling station to provide fuel for the buses and for private and other fleet vehicles, and design and construct an intermodal transit and housing center in Old Town Eureka. The buses will serve the Redwood Transit System as well as a new inter-city route to Ukiah, connecting riders to Mendocino County.
Funding announcement was July 7th, 2022. HTA anticipates formalizing the funding contract and starting work in Fall of 2022.
