Pittsburgh International Airport to Purchase New Electric Shuttle Buses

Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT) has been selected to receive over 1.4 million USD in Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) funding to purchase new electric shuttle buses and an additional electric vehicle charging station for passengers.

This funding was granted under FAA’s Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) programme. The funds will go towards the purchase of two electric shuttle buses and a direct current fast charging station as part of the airport’s Terminal Modernisation Program.

Vince Gastgeb, Senior Vice President, Corporate & Government Relations at Pittsburgh International Airport said:

“Sustainability is a key driver for PIT, and I’d like to thank our federal partners for recognising the opportunities at airports to reduce our industry’s carbon footprint.”

Alongside reducing carbon emissions, the new electric shuttle buses will increase capacity for transporting travellers between the airport’s parking lots and Landside Terminal.

Meanwhile, the new rapid charging station will add to PIT’s existing 15 charging stations available for travellers with electric vehicles.
