The Department of Transportation (DOT) must issue an annual best practices report on zero-emission bus programs to help states and transit agencies implement zero-emission bus fleets.

DOT must give preference in awarding grants under the low or no emission program to transit agencies who have completed a full fleet transition plan.

The federal share of the cost of any zero-emission bus purchased or leased in accordance with this bill shall be 90%.
