#DamienTalksSGV 8 – Roland Cordero and the Foothill Transit E-Bus Program

Welcome back to #DamienTalks!

Damien Talks SGV logoToday, #DamienTalks with Roland Cordero with Foothill Transit. Did you know Foothill Transit was the first transit agency in the country to have a completely electric bus route? I didn’t. It’s kind of cool.

It may have taken eight episodes, but we finally got around to interviewing our sponsor.

In recent years, Foothill Transit has replaced its diesel buses with CNG coaches, installed solar arrays on the roofs of its operations and maintenance yards in Arcadia and Pomona. And now, Foothill Transit is committed to having a 100 percent electric bus fleet by 2030.

In the interview, Cordero discusses the pros and cons of converting from a diesel fleet to a partially electric fleet. Spoiler: there are a lot more positives than negatives.

#DamienTalks is supported by Foothill Transit. Foothill Transit has been a leader in sustainable transportation for years. And now they’re committed to having a 100% electric bus fleet by 2030. To celebrate, Foothill Transit is giving away prizes and sharing facts about how their electric buses help clear the air.
