The Fresno County Rural Transit Agency (FCRTA) provides public transit service in rural areas within Fresno County. FCRTA is embarking on an innovative project to create transit microgrids and community resiliency hubs to expand transportation access, improve air quality, and support local communities
WHAT IS A MICRO GRID?
Microgrids are small, independent power systems that use sustainable energy (like solar or wind) to power everything from electric buses to cell phones.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROJECT?
Increase transportation service and access
Build electric vehicle charging stations for local residents
Redevelop vacant and underutilized land in rural areas
Create community resiliency hubs with amenities and services
Transition to a 100% zero emissions fleet
Provide backup power during emergencies (blackouts, wildfires)
Improve air quality
Create a more resilient Fresno County!
The outcomes of this project will impact our entire community. Because of that, every resident of Fresno County is a key partner!
We will be holding community workshops and conducting surveys throughout 2022. Details will be available on this website www.ruraltransit.org and will be publicized locally.
