From Deceit to Transformation

How Wisconsin Can Leverage Volkswagen Settlement Funds to Accelerate Progress to a Clean Transportation System
Released by: WISPIRG Foundation

Our new report recommends that $63.5 from the Volkswagen (VW) settlement headed to Wisconsin be used to install electric vehicle fast charging stations along the state’s highways and to purchase all-electric transit buses to replace aging, dirty diesel buses. 
This amount of investment could purchase up to 190 fast charging stations to electrify 81 percent of the state highway network, while also acquiring 67 all-electric, zero-emissions buses. Doing so would reduce dangerous pollution and save consumers and transit systems money, all while accelerating further market transformation to an all-electric transportation system.
