    Zero Emission Fleet

    A critical part of Project Connect is the conversion of our fleet to zero-emission vehicles. It will be key to the region's efforts to maintain our high quality of life and protect its natural beauty and clean air. In 2021, our board approved the purchase of nearly 200 electric buses. This will occur over the next several years and counts as the nation's largest electrical vehicle procurement.
