Sonoma County Transit’s First Electric Bus Has Arrived!
September 20, 2018
Sonoma County Transit recently took delivery of its first electric bus. The new BYD 30′ all-electric coach is being readied for service and is anticipated to be placed into daily operation in October. Driver and maintenance staff training is underway.
Sonoma County Transit’s move to a clean-fuel, low-emission fleet began in 1996 with its first purchase of natural gas powered buses. Since 2006, all heavy-duty coaches have been powered by natural gas.
The new bus will be deployed on Sebastopol local route 24.
