AVTA's Journey to Electrification - VIDEO

AVTA's Journey to Electrification

On March 16, 2022, the Antelope Valley Transit Authority Board of Directors, along with the California Air Resources Board (CARB), hosted a celebration recognizing AVTA becoming the first all-electric transit agency in North America. Antelope Valley Transit Authority received their 20th electric MCI coach for their commuter routes. The addition of these buses to AVTA’s fleet of BYD zero-emission buses, enables the agency to place into service a 100% zero-emission transit fleet.

AVTA’s journey to electrification did not happen overnight. It arrived through many steps taken by the staff of AVTA as they fulfilled the vision laid out by their Board of Directors.
