Summit Stage, the transit lifeline linking ski areas, workers and mountain towns in three counties, will get nearly $35 million from the federal infrastructure law to build an electric bus operations center and edge toward Summit County climate change goals.
It’s the largest federal grant Summit County has ever seen, and funds most of the shovel-ready project, freeing up that much capital for other county projects like affordable housing, said Summit County Commissioner Tamara Pogue.
Other rural Colorado bus agencies also got millions from the new round of federal grants announced Tuesday to buy electric buses, hybrids, cleaner compressed natural gas vehicles or replacement diesels that will pollute less and be more reliable, federal officials said.
