SPOKANE — An all-electric bus is running on Spokane routes this month to evaluate battery-powered transit.
The bus was made in China and is being demonstrated by the U.S. branch of BYD Co. Ltd.
One Spokane Transit Authority driver told The Spokesman-Review the bus drives smoothly and quietly.
A passenger was excited about zero-emission buses, but others complained about minimal seat padding and different locations for buttons to request stops. If the Spokane agency orders electric buses, it would order its own package of features.
