On Thursday, February 14th 2013, I successfully passed legislation through the city’s public safety committee that increases the weight limits of electric powered shuttle buses. In so doing, we are paving the way for the introduction of 100% electric shuttle service that will be free of charge to residents.
The entrepreneur is paying for the service through advertising on the sides of the shuttle service. The routes are being designed as I type and will be complementary in nature to our existing mass transit system.
It is important to identify means to be more energy efficient, cost conscious and improve our quality of life. If everything goes as expected this system should be operational by July 15th of this year.
Lastly and most importantly to me these vehicles are being manufactured in this country!
