The new vehicles have been purpose-built by members of the Sheet Metal, Air, Rail and Transportation (SMART) Workers Union at the BYD | RIDE Coach and Bus Facility in Lancaster, California.

BYD’s Senior Vice President, Patrick Duan said:

“BYD | RIDE applauds the City of Burlington for making the transition to clean, zero-emission transportation. We are thrilled they chose our K7M to help redefine the future of transportation by transitioning to green technology.”

As part of its initiative to promote the use of clean transportation, the City of Burlington has also worked to better connect its pedestrian walkways, greenways and bikeways to the Link bus stops.

John Andoh, Link Transit Manager said:

“We are excited to give Link Transit passengers the opportunity to ride a zero emissions transit bus with more capacity. As Link Transit replaces its buses in the future, those replacements would also become zero-emissions battery-electric buses as well. We are doing our part to make the environment better for future generations.”
