Going Electric Adds up to a Good Idea for NYC Buses” is the title of a guest blog written for Columbia University’s Earth Institute State of the Planet blog. The article looks at the decision to move to Electric Buses, and some of the considerations that New York City evaluated. The decision making process included a financial analysis, a greenhouse gas evaluation and a look at health impacts and costs to the residents of NYC. The city also looked at the experience of other cities around the world, and closely examined battery technologies and how they might function not only in New York’s climate, but on the routes and under the conditions on which NY City’s buses operate.
