Sacramento transit agency to put electric buses to the test

Sacramento Regional Transit officials revealed this week they are considering replacing their gas buses with electric ones, but first, they want to do a little experiment. General Manager Mike Wiley said RT expects to buy just 10 electric buses and two charging stations initially, and put them to the test on Stockton Boulevard, the longest and busiest bus route in the city, to see if they hold up to the rigors of day-long route running.
