Some of Florida’s biggest counties transitioning to electric buses

This week, the Miami-Dade County Commission voted unanimously to transition its transit fleet to 50 percent electric vehicles by 2035.

Meanwhile in neighboring Broward County, environmental activists say they expect lawmakers there to officially support moving to a 100 percent electric transit fleet within the next week. And Pinellas County’s transit system will begin running its first two electric transit buses beginning next week in downtown St. Petersburg.
