Virginia to use $12M in funding for electric transit buses.

More than $12 million in state funding will be used to deploy electric transit buses in three Virginia localities. In total, 17 electric buses and charging infrastructure will be used by local transit systems in Alexandria, Blacksburg and Hampton Roads.

Nearly $9 million of the funding will come from the Environmental Mitigation Trust that Virginia received as part of its settlement with Volkswagen.
