About GreenTRIP

First announced in July 2008, GreenTRIP was a one-time, $2-billion fund designed to support capital projects that lower greenhouse gas emissions by reducing reliance on single-occupancy vehicles. The third and final-call approved projects were announced on December 3, 2016, bringing the program to a close.
