10 grand prize winners announced for New York Clean Transportation Prizes program

The New York Clean Transportation Prizes program has 10 grand prize winners.

These winners will get part of the $85 million dollar prize pot. Funding is provided in order to enhance clean transportation, improve mobility options, and reduce harmful emissions through innovative transportation solutions.

The program was created in order to help with the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act. Goals of the Act include reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 85% by 2050.


“I am proud to be providing the most significant investment yet in clean transportation for historically underserved communities in New York State,” Governor Kathy Hochul said. “Improving access to clean mobility options, electrifying trucks and buses, and supporting projects that reduce air pollution modernizes the way residents and visitors access community services, recreation, and work opportunities while creating jobs, improving health, and reducing the impacts of climate change.”
