DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) is looking to electrify its fleet with new electric-powered buses.

One of the potential models was on display Tuesday afternoon in front of DART headquarters.

DART is currently applying for a Federal Transit Administration (FTA) low-emission grant that would partially fund the purchase of nine electric buses.
