VI. ESTABLISH EV PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION GOALS
Electrifying a municipal public transportation system is a no-regret solution that provides significant cost, health, and environmental benefits. According to the US Department of Transportation, every zero emission bus is able to eliminate 1,690 tons of CO2 over its lifespan. Additionally, electric buses reduce fuel and maintenance costs by $300,000-350,000 over the lifespan of each bus.
