Teton Village implements commercial EV infrastructure funding

Nearly $1 million in funding will buy four zero-emission battery-electric buses and charging equipment.

The Teton Village Association Improvement and Service District will receive $945,179 in funding to buy four zero-emission battery-electric buses and charging equipment to replace diesel buses that serve nearly half a million people in and around Teton Village.

This grant was funded by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, with 130 awards totaling nearly $1.7 billion for transit projects in 46 states and territories. It invests in more than 1,700 American-built buses manufactured with American parts and labor. The application by Teton Village Association was sponsored by the Wyoming Department of Transportation, which will provide grant oversight.

The new buses will improve service and reliability and reduce maintenance costs to transport visitors and employees from the Ranch parking lot to the base of the tram in Teton Village. Teton Village Association will fund the 20% local match, $166,796, from capital project funds supported by the Teton Village Resort District.

Teton Village Association Improvement and Service District said it plans to order four Lightning ZEV4 buses, four level two chargers and one DC fast charger from Lightning eMotors. The new electric buses will be introduced in the fall of 2024, to replace high-mileage internal combustion engine buses.
