With over $800 million in funding for public transportation heading to Minnesota from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law—not to mention an additional $2.5 billion in competitive grants for electric transit buses—the time is now for cities and counties to establish electric bus goals and policies that ensure they get a piece of the pie.

Every day, Minnesotans drive more than 123 million miles—the distance from Earth to the sun, and halfway back again. These miles add up to a massive amount of greenhouse gas emissions, making cars and trucks the number one source of climate pollution for the transportation sector in our state. While Minnesota is working to curb the number of vehicle miles traveled by increasing investments in electrification and in public transit, bicycle, and pedestrian infrastructure, more must be done to reduce the emissions from vehicles on the road. That’s where clean car standards come into play.
