Alternative Fuels Safety and Advanced Bus Technology Support

The objective of this project is to support FTA activities, including--industry standards and guidance document development, advanced technology bus development programs, and alternative fuels safety in transit. This continuing effort assists the FTA in conducting needed research to provide information for standards development activities; development of new technical guidance documents for the transit industry; update technical guidance documents on alternative fuels and conduct special research studies on issues related to alternative fuel use in transit; provide technical support on the Fuel Cell and Zinc-Air Bus technology development projects; and provide general technical support to the FTA Office of Technology in the area of alternative fuel use in transit and advanced bus technologies. Technical support assists the agency in updating previously published technical guidance documents on alternative fuels, and participating in the interagency Hydrogen Task Force.
