MBTA Diesel Event 002  

The Patrick Administration has announced $1.1 million in federal stimulus funds under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) will repower 11 MBTA locomotives' engines to reduce particulate and nitrogen oxide emissions, which contribute to asthma and other respiratory problems.

A total of $1.73 million in federal stimulus funds from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)will also support projects that address diesel emissions from trash and recycling trucks and fishing boats, and promote the purchase of cleaner running hybrid trucks.

The grants were announced today at the MBTA’s Readville train yard in Hyde Park.
