BYD, a global leader in electric vehicle technology and battery electric bus manufacturing, applauds the Biden Administration and congressional leadership on passage of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, a once-in-a-generation investment in our nation’s infrastructure, combatting climate change, the green economy, and global competitiveness. The bill has the potential to create hundreds of jobs at BYD Coach & Bus in Los Angeles County.

“BYD is committed to the Build Back Better agenda and to working with the Biden Administration and Congress to implement this historic bill that will makes the largest ever investment in public transportation – including 24,000 green buses – to reduce greenhouse emissions,” said Stella Li, President of BYD North America. “This bill, along with the historic agreement signed at COP26, will put zero-emission vehicles on the road, create thousands of good-paying union jobs, and dramatically reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the transportation sector. But this historic investment can only achieve its transformative goals if BYD is part of BBB.”

This historic legislation will invest $39 billion of new funding to modernize transit, and a total, of $89.9 billion for public transportation in the next five years. The legislation will expand public transportation options in every city and state in the country, and replace thousands of outdated and environmentally hazardous buses, with clean, zero emission vehicles.
