Congresswoman Barbara Lee leads AC Transit bus tour

Congresswoman Barbara Lee held a tour throughout her Ninth Congressional District aboard an AC Transit bus. The tour highlighted local agencies and organizations that received stimulus and/or Appropriations funding.

Lee is a member of the Appropriations Committee, as well as Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus.

The tour was conducted on a zero-emissions hydrogen fuel cell bus. Three hydrogen fuel cell buses were purchased with federal funding the Congresswoman helped secure.

Coincidently, during the tour, Rep. Lee was informed by the Federal Department of Transportation (FTA) that President Obama’s proposed budget, released earlier today, includes $15 million in DOT funds for AC Transit’s Bus Rapid Transit Project.

This represents BRT’s first formal inclusion in the federal appropriations process.
