The Sunline Transit Agency received $1.5 million to build a transit maintenance facility for zero-emission buses, the agency announced early August.

The facility will also be an interactive learning center and provide a workforce training program in zero emission transportation technology, the agency said. It will also help serve SunLine’s growing fleet of zero-emission buses.

The money came from the Federal Transit Administration’s Low and No Emission Bus Program. SunLine also recently received $270,000 from the National Fuel Cell Bus Program to develop the facility.

SunLine partnered with organizations including College of the Desert, Orange County Transportation Authority, and others on the facility.
