Fairfield and the Napa Valley transit agency are among 17 local governments and transit agencies in California to receive part of over $236 million in grants from the U.S. Department of Transportation to aid the transition to zero-emission buses. About $12 million goes to Fairfield's FAST Bus Fleet Electrification Project, while the Napa Valley Transportation Authority's Napa Vine Zero Emission Bus Electrification program will receive $6.3 million. Under the California Air Resources Board's Innovative Clean Transit Regulation, all new bus purchases by transit agencies and local governments must be zero-emission buses beginning in 2029, with a goal for full transition by 2040.
