AVTA Adds Electric Support Vehicles to Its All-Electric Bus Fleet

The Antelope Valley Transit Authority (AVTA) has deployed four new battery-electric vehicles to support its all-electric bus services.

AVTA provides local, commuter and on-demand services in Lancaster, Palmdale and northern Los Angeles County, covering 1,200 square miles of California.

The all-electric 2023 Chevrolet Bolts were purchased from Antelope Valley Chevrolet.

In 2020, AVTA became the first transit agency in North America to operate an all-electric local bus fleet. Following this, it then started operating the continent’s first all-electric commuter fleet in 2022.

The agency is now adding battery-electric support vehicles to its fleet.

AVTA Chairman of the Board Marvin Crist said:

“The AVTA Board continues to hold to our vision of an all-electric transit agency, including support vehicles. We are very pleased that AVTA was able to fulfill the RFP from a local business here in the Antelope Valley.”
