‘Green New Wheel’ plan from Schumer aims to fund zero emission buses nationwide


Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer altered a catchy slogan for his new plan to fund the conversion of buses nationwide to zero emissions, borrowing from fellow Democrat, Queens/Bronx Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Clean Transit for America — or the “Green New Wheel,” as Schumer dubbed it Tuesday — is the next topic on the agenda in Washington for the Senate Majority Leader. He announced the plan at the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s Tuskegee Airmen Bus Depot in Harlem directing some of his comments toward the transit agency who he believes has not converted fast enough.
