July 10 – Building on clean energy achievements, Senators Reverend Warnock and Ossoff announce $45 million in federal funding for clean energy transportation in Georgia | Local Government & Politics

July 10, 2024 – U.S. Senators Reverend Raphael Warnock (D-GA) and Jon Ossoff (D-GA) announced $45 million in federal funding for Georgia’s clean energy and green transportation economy, specifically for three Georgia cities that will invest in all-electric and clean energy buses and a new transit hub. The funding was made possible through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, which Senators Warnock and Ossoff championed for their investments in Georgia.

In Atlanta, MARTA will receive $25,347,982 to build the South DeKalb Transit Hub, which will serve as a central point for bus and rail connections in DeKalb County. The new facility will improve safety, comfort and accessibility for MARTA riders, including those from disadvantaged communities.
