Metro Transit demonstrates all-electric bus


Three manufacturers are demonstrating a new generation of all-electric buses on Minneapolis streets, and transit users are invited to try them for free.

An electric bus made by St. Cloud-based New Flyer will be running on Metro Transit’s Route 18 between downtown and the 46th Street Station both today and tomorrow. In honor of Earth Day on April 22, Metro Transit is purchasing wind-energy credits from Xcel Energy to offset the power consumed by both the demonstration bus and light-rail trains.
