Cleaner air, here we come. Yesterday, the Board approved the contract to purchase Metro’s first electric buses. A press conference was held after the Board meeting – check out the video below and see the model e-bus.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BYmFRwTwxB4]

I think I saw this type of buses already running at Long Beach Transit.
LBT told the Long Beach City Council that BYD submitted a bus for Altoona testing and it began on 4/29/13.
Agenda item #12 (page 34 of PDF)
Can anyone tell me if these BYD buses have been certified by the USDOT yet via the testing center at Altoona?
Great development, but it’s a cruel irony that Mike Antonovich gets to bask in the glory of it since won his seat on the Board by defeating a guy who campaigned for a countywide LRT system (and who was ridiculed for it at the time). #BaxterWard
