“LA Metro’s decision to switch from fossil fuel, gas-powered buses to 100% clean, electric buses will reduce greenhouse gas emissions while cutting the air pollution that is poisoning our communities, and improve the quality of life for the 9.6 million people who live, work, play and breathe in this region. This decision also signals to transit agencies around the country that, even as the administration in D.C. puts the brakes on progress fighting climate change, Los Angeles area leaders are accelerating to a clean energy future. We thank the entire Metro Board and staff for leading the way to a zero emission future for LA County. We are especially grateful to the the five Board Members who joined together to introduce today’s historic zero emission bus motion: LA Mayor and the new Chair of the Metro Board Eric Garcetti, LA City Councilmember Mike Bonin, LA County Supervisor Janice Hahn, LA County Supervisor Hilda Solis and Glendale City Councilmember Ara Najarian.”
The LA County Electric Bus Coalition includes the American Lung Association in California, Earthjustice, Environment California Research & Policy Center, Food & Water Watch – California, International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Union Local 11, Jobs to Move America, SoCal Sierra Club, South Bay Los Angeles 350 Climate Action Group and the Union of Concerned Scientists—all united in their support of a 100% renewable powered electric bus fleet for LA Metro.
