Clean and Equitable Mass Transit


May 25th 10AM to 11AM PST

Equitably electrifying mass transit

Clean and Equitable Mass Transit

With major cities making the decision to shift to all-electric bus fleets, the question is no longer whether or when the transition to quiet, clean mass transit will happen - It’s already happening.

New options such as electric- and hydrogen-powered buses will provide cleaner air and a better experience for passengers and drivers while supporting the imperative to cut greenhouse gas emissions.

During this webinar, we’ll hear from the bus manufacturers on why they’re moving to all-electric transit buses. We will also hear from cities and transit agencies currently making the move to cleaner mass transit and how they are prioritizing equity as they electrify certain transit lines 

Join this webinar moderated by Sabrina Cerquera, Program Associate at Forth, to hear from panelist Margarita Parra International Program Director at Clean Energy Works.
