ZEB Transition Plan Stakeholder Summit- Oct. 26 and Oct. 27
Under state statute, the Metropolitan Council is responsible for developing a Zero-Emission Bus and electric vehicle transition plan and revise the plan once every five years (Minn. Stat. 473.3927). The initial plan was submitted to the Legislature in February 2022.
The Plan identifies short- (2022-2027), medium- (2028-2032), and long- (beyond 2033) term opportunities, risks, and implementation strategies to transition Metro Transit’s bus fleet to zero-emission technology.
The transportation sector in Minnesota accounts for about a quarter of all statewide greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions
Buses (including school buses, transit buses, and intercity buses) account for 0.7% of transportation GHG emissions in Minnesota
The transition to zero-emission buses is one of many strategies Metro Transit intends to implement to make a meaningful impact on tackling climate change.
Metro Transit will host an annual Zero Emission Bus (ZEB) Transition Plan update. The virtual stakeholder summit will provide an update on Metro Transit’s transition to zero emission bus technology, including successes and lessons learned for battery electric bus operations. The same information will be at each workshop.
