Oregon transit agency buys 11 New Flyer e-buses and 7 ABB chargers

Lane Transit District (LTD) in Oregon has ordered 11 New Flyer Xcelsior CHARGE forty-foot electric buses, along with 7 ABB depot chargers. The purchase was supported by Federal Transit Administration Low or No- Emission funding.

LTD has long been committed to sustainability. After receiving a silver level certification for the American Public Transportation Association’s sustainability commitment in 2014, the agency hired a Sustainability Program Manager and conducted a carbon footprint analysis of its operations, and found the two greatest opportunities to reduce community greenhouse gas emissions lay in ridership increases and reduction of fleet vehicle emissions.
