LANCASTER, CA--Dec. 23, 2013: Today, the Antelope Valley Transit Authority (AVTA) announced the purchase of two 40-foot, battery-electric buses as part of its clean bus initiative. The buses have been funded through a generous grant arranged by Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael Antonovich to support an electric bus demonstration project in the Antelope Valley. The $1.9 million grant came from Proposition A local return funds and will cover the cost of both buses plus the charging system. "The AVTA is grateful to the Supervisor for his leadership and we are ready to get started on this important initiative," stated AVTA Executive Director Julie Austin. "We look forward to this exciting partnership with BYD."

“We see the value of modern, clean and efficient buses. The AVTA is a proponent of green technology and we look forward to being a leader in zero emission bus deployment.”

Chairman of the Board Norm Hickling added, "We see the value of modern, clean and efficient buses. The AVTA is a proponent of green technology and we look forward to being a leader in zero emission bus deployment."
