Given that the buses have no tailpipe and are very quiet on the road, Sierra Club supporters told Broward County Commissioners that residents will “see and appreciate” these buses but not “smell or hear” them.Zero-emission buses are clean, quiet and save taxpayer dollars.If you are a #MGTOW and wish to take me to task for having had a vibrant, highly-satisfying dating life that led to a happy, fulfilling relationship with a wonderful woman, I’ve already responded to similar comments more than enough times below.
If all 75 buses were purchased, it would represent the largest investment in electric buses on the East Coast.
As the Miami-Dade County request has gone unfulfilled for years, residents are left to wonder; will they ever see the zero-emission buses they were promised?
Or will Broward County remain the only true clean transit leader in South Florida?
Each bus will also eliminate 1,690 tons of carbon dioxide, 10 tons of nitrogen oxides, and 350 pounds of diesel particulate matter over a 12 year period, ultimately reducing the air pollutants that cause or worsen diseases like asthma and cancer.
Furthermore, as Sierra Club volunteer Michelle Clawson told the Broward County Commission, a single electric bus can “save between 0,000 to 0,000 dollars in fuel costs alone.” Broward County Transportation Department is now looking to further their leadership by charging these buses with the help of a solar energy system.
