This is a zero-emissions bus that holds 28 seats and it will be used in a traditional route for students in the district. There are currently four all-electronic busses throughout Oregon. If future grants become available to purchase another all-electronic bus, RSD will add to its fleet.
As a tradition to number a new bus, RDS's Transportation Department numbered it 1.21, an agrement to the number of gigawatts needed for the flux capacitor to work in the movie, Back to the Future.
"The bus will save the district approximately $30,000 a year in gas and maintenance costs," states Rehana Nelson, Reynolds School District Transportation Coordinator. Nelson added, "It has a 100-mile range on an eight-hour charge, which fits well for our district's routes, all less than 100 miles."
