100%of LADOT Buses on the road are electric

The Transportation Electrification Partnership has set a goal of shifting 20% of all trips in single occupancy vehicles to zero emissions public and active transit by 2028. To support this goal and our overall goal of an additional 25% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution, LADOT has committed to a goal of 100% zero-emissions buses by 2028.

Current Value: 7.48%

Goal: 100%

Progress to Target

On Track

 

Bus electrification goals will also face obstacles with grid and charging infrastructure and vehicle costs. These could potentially threaten goal completion, however, significant federal and state funding investments and regulations could spur faster adoption in the next few years to get the region on track.

Recent Progress and Milestones

In 2018, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) mandated that California transit bus fleets must be zero-emission by 2040. Starting in 2029, mass transit agencies in California will be required to purchase battery electric or fuel cell electric transit buses for their fleets. CARB said it expected that municipal bus fleets would be able to meet the fully electric mandate by 2040.

Currently, LADOT has electrified 8% of fleet, with 130 more buses ordered which will electrify up to 40% of their overall fleet.

How we measure progress

Updates for this target are measured via data collection from LADOT on the progress towards their electrification goals. Data is aimed to be collected and updated quarterly.
