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.
