Electric Buses Rolling in Avon

 

The Town of Avon will welcome its first electric buses into service this weekend. This milestone marks a significant step in transitioning Avon’s diesel transit fleet to zero-emission vehicles. The $2M purchase was made possible with a Federal Transit Authority Low-No Emission Vehicle Grant. The $1.6M grant helped purchase two 35’ electric battery Proterra buses. The new additions, coupled with the Town’s commitment to renewable energy with Holy Cross Energy, are key components of the Town’s strategy toward reaching Avon’s Climate Action Goals. 
  
 “We are eager to get these electric buses on the road. Transit plays an important role in our community.  Providing transit service in an environmentally friendly manner will no doubt promote a healthier community and cleaner air for all,” said Mayor Sarah Smith Hymes.
  
An Avon electric bus will be showcased at Avon Station on Saturday, June 11, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Please join us at 10 a.m. for the event kickoff. Refreshments and swag will be available. For more information, please contact Mobility Manager Jim Shoun at mobility@avon.org or call 970-748-4120.
