Welcome back to #DamienTalks!

Today, #DamienTalks with Roland Cordero with Foothill Transit. Did you know Foothill Transit was the first transit agency in the country to have a completely electric bus route? I didn't, it's kind of cool.

It may have taken eight episodes, but we finally got around to interviewing our sponsor

Foothill Transit has replaced its diesel-fuel buses with CNG coaches, installed solar arrays on the roofs of its operations and maintenance yards in Arcadia and Pomona. And now Foothill Transit is committed to having a 100% electric bus fleet by 2030.

In the interview, Cordero discusses the pro's and cons of converting from a diesel fleet to a partially electric fleet. Spoiler: there's a lot more positives than negatives.

#DamienTalks is supported by Foothill Transit. Foothill Transit has been a leader in sustainable transportation for years. And now they’re committed to having a 100% electric bus fleet by 2030. To celebrate, Foothill Transit is giving away prizes and sharing facts about how their electric buses help clear the air. Visit Foothill Transit's e-bus sweepstakes webpage to see how you can join in the eco-friendly fun!
