Five all-electric buses to be added to BT fleet
Blacksburg Transit will add five all electric buses and fast charging stations to its existing fleet in the next two years. Funding for the 6.9 million dollar project was provided by the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation and Virginia and Department of Environmental Quality and other federal and local sources. The DEQ funds are part of the Volkswagen Environmental Mitigation Trust (VW Trust) that the state received as part of its settlement. The new all electric buses will replace five older conventional diesel beginning in fall of 2021.
