Clean Diesel Buses Join the B.C. Transit Fleet
New, cleaner buses are hitting the road in Broome County.
Eight new vehicles are being put into service, replacing BC Transit buses that are over 14 years old.
The new, clean diesel Gillig buses cost $446, 872 each with most of the cost, $2,565,780, being covered through State Capital Funding, 25%, $897,064, from Federal Formula Funding and 3.14%, $112,132, covered by the county.
Officials say the buses will not only offer cleaner emissions, lower fuel consumption and lower the costs to operate per mile but also have a more comfortable ride for passengers.
