Broward County Transit upgrades to zero-emission buses
Fort Lauderdale, Florida – According to Broward County Transit, buses are getting an upgrade, and it’s electric.
The new electric buses with zero-emission are the first in South Florida.
Only 12 have been ordered so far, but that’s only the beginning.
The new buses are battery-operated, with two electric motors allowing the buses to travel over 300 miles before needing a recharge.
“Our intention is to go 100% electric with our fleet,” said Broward County Transit spokesperson Arethia Douglas. “Our plan is to do that by 2035, and so annually, we will be switching out our diesel buses to these 100% electric vehicles.”
The buses are equipped with a pedestrian alert system, security cameras, and free Wi-Fi for passengers.
