Sen. Catherine Cortex Masto, D-Nev., on Friday announced the Tahoe Transportation District will receive a major grant for a battery-electric powered bus.

She said the new bus will benefit both visitors and residents in the Tahoe Basin and help maintain the area’s pristine environment.

The grant is for a total of $850,000 and, in addition to its environmental benefits, help address the basin’s transportation challenges.
