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.
The Proterra EcoRide electric buses would be the second zero-emission vehicles in the DART fleet. DART’s electric light rail vehicles are the first and largest zero-emission transit fleet in the state.
The project cost, including the buses, charging stations and infrastructure for operation on the D-Link through downtown, Oak Cliff and Uptown, is estimated at $13 million.
