Ohio gives TARTA $1.7M for low-emission engines

A $1,714,627 state grant will allow the Toledo Area Regional Transit Authority to replace the diesel engines on 33 of its buses with low-emission engines, officials said.

The Diesel Emissions Reduction Grant was one of 10 announced yesterday by the Ohio Department of Development.

The lower-emission engines will be installed in buses TARTA bought in 1998 and 1999. They are expected to reduce that fleet s annual hydrocarbon pollution by 4,000 pounds and its nitrogen oxides emissions by 33,000 pounds.

TARTA must provide a local match of $428,656.75 to the state funding, which can include the labor involved to install the engines and other in-kind work.
