Vermont to launch two-year electric bus pilot program

MONTPELIER, Vt. (WCAX) The state of Vermont will launch a two-year pilot program to test how well electric school and transit buses would do in the state.

The program will be funded by the Volkswagen Environmental Mitigation Trust. The pilot will look at costs over a two-year period. They will select at least two schools and one transit agency to participate in the use of electric buses.

They plan to release a request for qualifications in the coming weeks for those interested.
