El Monte, Calif., Gets $6.7M from State for Clean Mobility

(TNS) — The city of El Monte was awarded a $6.7 million grant by the California Air Resources Board to implement its Clean Mobility Nexus, a project that will fuel the expansion of carbon-free transportation options in the city.

The funding will allow the city to purchase four new electric buses to facilitate new shuttle services; install nine new electric charging stations, including two fast-charging stations for the buses; purchase 20 electric vehicles for a city-wide carsharing program; and offer subsidized subscriptions for electric-assist bikes.

“We are thrilled to receive this grant from the California Air Resources Board to fund the Clean Mobility Nexus project in El Monte,” City Manager Alma Martinez said in a statement announcing the award. “The grant will go a long way towards providing our community with a range of sustainable transportation options that will not only help reduce greenhouse gas emissions but also improve air quality, which is a top priority for us.”
