Alaska’s first electric school bus heading to Tok!

It looks like an ordinary school bus sitting on the lot in front of TrailerCraft, an Anchorage truck dealership, but the bus in question is actually the state’s first electric school bus, and it will soon be heading north to serve students in Tok.

Juneau should be taking ownership of its first electric public transit bus this December. And, the CBJ has procured 3-5 more, all in the pipeline and on their way in the not so distant future! Once these electric transit buses are put into service, roughly half of the Juneau diesel fleet will have been converted to zero emissions, low operating cost and low maintenance cost public buses!
