Kuster Helps Secure Funding for Nashua’s New Hybrid Buses, Attends Ribbon Cutting

Nashua, NH – Today, Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02), a member of the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Energy, joined elected officials, BAE employees and local transportation and community development officials for a ribbon cutting ceremony for Nashua’s two new hybrid buses. Kuster wrote a letter of support for the City of Nashua’s application for grant funds from the Federal Transit Administration’s Low or No Emissions program and helped to secure funding to pay for the buses. The buses will join the nine compressed natural gas buses the Nashua Transit System already operates and further Nashua’s goal of reducing emissions.

“We are already seeing the effects of climate change on our environment, and if we don’t act now, future generations will pay the price,” said Kuster. “I applaud the City of Nashua for its commitment to reducing carbon emissions by providing environmentally-friendly transportation options. I’m excited about this new addition to the Nashua community and I will continue to advocate for programs and policies that will help us combat climate change and save our planet.”   

“Nashua Transit System was thrilled to have Congresswoman Kuster attend our ribbon cutting ceremony today for our two new electric hybrid buses,” said Camille Pattison, Transportation Manager for the City of Nashua.  “We are grateful to have the continued support from our congressional delegation to launch this new green technology.  The City of Nashua is proud to continue offering sustainable transportation options to our community.”
