Experimental Bus Makes the Rounds in Reno

March 20, 2015

BYD Reno Bus
If we thought about the use of renewable energy for transportation only five years ago, it would seem far-fetched, a sci-fi movie thing. This clip shows one more urban center that has jumped into the EV bandwagon – now it’s time for Reno, Nevada, to join in, and not surprisingly, city dwellers and operators are beyond pleased. The city now has added this BYD 60-foot-long electric bus to the four smaller e-Buses it already has in operation. The worldwide trend for cities to go green with their transportation is already set. BYD, as a leader in the sector with its electrified transportation solutions present in over 100 cities worldwide, shows it is more than ready to materialize the ideal of improving environmental conditions in urban centers around the globe.
