Federal Transit Administration - Sustainable Transit for a Healthy Planet Challenge. Due 3/1/2023.
Sustainable Transit for a Healthy Planet Challenge Phase 2
On June 15, 2021, FTA launched the Sustainable Transit for a Healthy Planet Challenge to encourage transit agencies to take bold action to further reduce GHG emissions from public transportation to support President Biden’s GHG reduction goal. The challenge calls on transit agencies to develop climate, sustainability, or electrification or zero-emission transition plans that include strategies with measurable goals to achieve GHG emission targets.
During the first phase of the challenge – which took place June 2021 to April 2022 – 171 transit agencies signed on. During Phase 2, FTA seeks to increase transit agency participation by 25 percent to ensure the transit industry continues to make progress in curbing greenhouse gas emissions.
All transit agencies nationwide, regardless of size or service area, are encouraged to participate in the Challenge. Throughout 2022 and early 2023, FTA will continue to provide technical assistance to participants as they develop their plans and strategies.
