    Have not seen any 97/98/2000's out since all the XN's went into service. Most 98/2000's have been auctioned off.

    SMART's fleet is comprised 100% alternatively fueled buses. Majority are CNG. We use CNG from renewable sources only. Our CNG fleet will be 100% near zero emissions engined within 5 years as well. We have a growing fleet of battery electric buses, currently 350 and growing. We are actively engaged in finding funding sources to put more electric buses in service and are committed to being 100% electric by 2035 as well. We also have 5 hydrogen electric buses being tested and have been awarded $35 million in grants to add more hydrogen electric buses to the fleet this year ( announcement on awarding of contracts soon). Yes indeed we are making the system SMARTer for sure. Stay tuned for more updates.

We are taking the time to go over everything. We want everyone to have a voice in this process. With Phase 1 completed we will begin Phase 2 now. We have heard the public and we are Identifying a range of potential service scenarios to meet the needs of our community better. Some of these scenarios will be put together to present in Phase 3 as a comprehensive plan while others may be brought to our board and implemented in a expedited manor. Our June service change will highlight several of these immediate needs that you the public said we needed to do better and quickly on. We have listed and below are those that we feel warranted implementation now to better serve our community. Principles of the SMART 2020 Initiative Simplify service Buses more often and longer hours Improved customer amenities at bus stops Better regional connections Reduce duplication of service Improve safety and comfort for passengers Our Approach The SMART 2020 Initiative will evaluate different types of service investments and consider possible changes to SMART’s services and routes. The year-long comprehensive analysis will take an in-depth look into current transit operations and anticipate future service needs to improve people’s ability to move around Sierra Monrovia County and easily access everyday destinations today and beyond. The SMART 2020 Initiative will identify the most important improvements to the transit system – new transit services, improvements to existing services, and new customer amenities. Ultimately, this document will serve as a road map for SMART to improve the customer experience and meet community needs for the next 5 to 10 years. The SMART 2020 Initiative process consists of four phases over the next year: Phase 1: Understand transportation needs - NOW COMPETED Phase 2: Identify a range of potential service scenarios to meet those needs - Begins May 21 Phase 3: Evaluate service scenarios; choose a preferred network of routes and services; and define priority projects and plans. Fall / Winter 2018/19 Phase 4 Begin Implementation of the plan based on final recommendations and community input PHASE 2 Starts Monday, May 21 Stay tuned for announcements via web, Facebook & Twitter.
