The US Federal Aviation Administration is funding battery electric buses for airports to provide zero emission ground transportation.

United States airports are investing in electric buses to help passengers make connections from airport terminals to rental cars and parking lots. Electric buses – whether they be trolleys or battery electric – emit less air pollution, are quieter and less odorous.

Battery electric buses are becoming a popular amenity for airports to offer. According to electric bus manufacturer Proterra CEO Ryan Popple in a statement,

"Airports are an ideal use case for electric vehicle technology because of their predictable circulator routes and potential for shared charging infrastructure with other service vehicles in the fleet.”
