Electric Buses

From all-electric Trolley vehicles to converting the entire bus fleet to low-emission compressed natural gas (CNG) and propane, MTS has been a leader in reducing our carbon footprint.

The state of California has ambitious air quality and carbon footprint reduction goals for our future. Part of those goals include the electrification of transit fleets wherever feasible.

MTS will receive its first electric buses in summer 2019, with an electric bus pilot program expected to debut in Fall 2019. Further electrification of the bus fleet would reduce low-emission with no-emission vehicles and further reduce San Diego’s environmental impact.

Possible Elevate SD Electric Bus Projects Include: 

  • Purchase more electric buses
  • Build necessary charging infrastructure at existing bus facilities
  • Build “in-route” charging infrastructure
  • Build new facilities to house buses
