In the US, transportation is the sector that contributes the most greenhouse gas pollution . The electricity in NY is 25% renewable, making electrification of the transportation sector a crucial part of the climate change and clean air solution.
While Sierra Club encourages the use of mass transit to abate personal driving, we must be sure that NY’s largest transit agency is transitioning swiftly to the cleanest transit buses on the market: electric.
Come learn how electric buses compare to diesel, diesel hybrid, and natural gas options.
