The Steamship Authority announced it will welcome a pair of electric buses to its fleet to transport passengers between parking lots and ferry terminals in Falmouth and Hyannis.
 

That’s thanks to two grants—one state, one federal—which add up to $875,000. The monies will help the authority switch from diesel to batteries, which will, in turn, help the agency reduce its carbon footprint and join the larger trend in the transportation sector toward electrification.
