Transit Emissions and Energy Reduction Assistance

Archived: 12/31/2013

The Transit Investments for Greenhouse Gas and Energy Reduction (TIGGER) Program works with public transit agencies to implement strategies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and energy use from transit agency operations. Strategies may be implemented through operational or technological enhancements and electric drive projects are specifically encouraged. Eligible projects include on-board vehicle energy management such as energy storage, regenerative braking, fuel cells, and turbines; accessory electrification; vehicle and locomotive design including lightweight materials; and rail transit energy management such as regenerative braking and solar propulsion engine systems. For more information, see the TIGGER Program website.
