Regional Transportation Commission of Washoe County
Date: 2021-02-12
In Nevada, the Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Washoe County reports it will add 19 new alternative fuel and hybrid buses to its fleet of 68 aging diesel buses during the month of February, as part of an effort to have an all-alternative-fuel fleet by 2035.

When all of the new buses are deployed, 80 pct -- 55 units -- of the fleet will be hybrid or electric alternative-fuel vehicles. The RTC is using federal funds to purchase the buses.

Since 2010, the RTC has reduced total facility energy use by 25 pct, reduced criteria air pollutants per un-linked passenger trip by 13.1 pct and increased the recycling rate to approximately 33 pct, acording to the release.
