Transit's New Electric Buses now in Service
- Hop on Route 22 from Sawgrass Mills to Broward Central Terminal -

BROWARD COUNTY, FL -- Broward County Transit (BCT) has officially begun carrying passengers on two new electric buses which run on Route 22 on Broward Blvd. from Sawgrass Mills Mall in Sunrise to Broward Central Terminal in Fort Lauderdale. 

The buses are designed to travel up to 300 miles on a full charge with two electric motors. They also have overhead charge rails for on-route charging. The 40-foot buses are designed and manufactured in the United States and offer zero tailpipe emissions and lower operating costs with fewer parts than combustion engine vehicles. The battery-electric buses will also help to reduce carbon emissions, improve air quality and deliver a quieter and smoother ride for passengers. Other features include a pedestrian alert system, security cameras, onboard public information monitors and free Wi-Fi. 

BCT purchased 12 battery-operated electric buses and expects to put them in service by late fall as it transitions to an all-electric fleet. Face masks and social distancing are required on all County buses. For more information, visit the BCT website
