GreenPower Wins Electric Bus Order from L.A. School District
GreenPower Motor Co. has received a purchase order and the initial deposit for its Synapse 72 all-electric school bus for the Los Angeles Unified School District (L.A. Unified).
L.A. Unified is the second largest school district in the nation, and its transportation division operates a fleet of approximately 1,300 school buses and transports thousands of students daily. Through several state grant awards, L.A. Unified has been able to replace more than 50% of its diesel engine school buses with a variety alternative fuel vehicles, including compressed natural gas and propane autogas buses. GreenPower says its Synpase 72 vehicle will be among the school district’s first all-electric buses.
