BYD has delivered five electric buses to the Vineyard Transit Authority (VTA) in Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts; a sixth is scheduled to be delivered by the end of the July. VTA had placed the order for the buses in August 2017.
The six-bus order comprised four BYD K9S 35-foot models and two K7 30-foot models. The BYD buses will replace six diesel buses as part of the VTA’s plan to convert its fleet. The VTA announced it will purchase an additional four BYD buses.
