In March 2021, the Vermont House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed the annual Transportation Bill. It includes increased investments in electric vehicle and high efficiency vehicle incentives, as well as fare-free transit and other dollar-saving, pollution reducing strategies.

Now, the Vermont Senate is considering the Transportation Bill, and ideally will make greater investments in these tested and new programs. Find a helpful summary of the transportation modernization package from our friends at VPIRG here.
