On 17 May 2018 EcoWatch reported:
On Tuesday (15 May), the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SF Muni) Board of Directors passed a resolution to begin procuring zero emission battery buses to replace electric hybrid vehicles by 2025, with a goal of achieving a 100 percent electric bus fleet by 2035. The resolution allows SF Muni to catch up to other Californian transit agencies from Los Angeles to Stockton that have already started switching their bus fleets to zero-emissions electric buses.
Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the fields of science and government, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
The resolution comes after a coalition of community, environmental, and labor groups delivered a joint letter to SF Muni decision-makers last month, urging them to go electric. ... Seven other Californian transit agencies -- representing almost one-third of all public buses in California -- have already committed to making a full transition to zero-emission buses in the past year.
. . . The commitment to a zero-emissions fleet comes after SF Muni committed last month to testing nine battery electric buses. Those first electric buses are expected to hit the streets in fall 2018. The pilot program will evaluate how electric buses perform on crowded and hilly routes, and allow staff to evaluate the facility upgrades needed to support an all-electric fleet.
