Groups push Boston-area transit agency to accelerate electric bus transition

Date: January 8, 2020

The Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority is testing five electric buses and says charging infrastructure is a barrier.

A coalition of environmental and civic groups is urging Massachusetts’ biggest public transit agency to speed its adoption of electric buses and prioritize the deployment of cleaner buses in disadvantaged neighborhoods.

“We just think the time is now and there is a huge urgency to making that commitment,” said Eleanor Fort, senior campaign manager at environmental justice group Green For All and a member of the coalition.
