Funny that they didnt list 1406, 29, and 35, 1406 was retired earlier this month, its being stripped now, and then 1429 and 1435 were wrecked in 1999 (i think) and 2002. Those two probably have been off roster for so long that they don't count them any more.

Any updates on the battery electric buses' performance? Have they found any to be particularly advantageous? I certainly have guesses on their thoughts but I think MUNI and KC Metro are the only two agencies that seem to be doing head to head comparisons.

Is the fact the new 30ft ENC fleet not made to be battery electric a missed opportunity? Theoretically speaking, BEBs would be great for shorter distance, smaller buses

When they were ordered, ENC didn’t have a BEB option. However, they came out with their BEB Axess this year so I imagine an electric EZR isn’t that far away.

But most importantly, it seems the SFMTA is taking a conservative approach to battery electric buses. And that’s not a bad thing. They already run well-proven trolleybuses. There’s always the risk of getting burned by new, emerging technology.
