US: Hallandale Beach Unveils New Electric Bus Fleet

Hallandale Beach has unveiled a brand new all-electric, zero-emission bus fleet for operation within the city.

The fleet, nicknamed The Cloud, is part of the city’s move to incorporate more zero-emission vehicles on a larger scale within its public transport network, with further plans to introduce e-bikes and additional electric vehicles in the coming years.

The Cloud is one piece of the City’s planned electric transportation system that includes e-bikes, electric vehicles, and more

Consisting of nine electric buses, the fleet now forms one of the largest electric vehicle systems throughout the state of Florida, and was made possible by both a grant from the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) totalling 3.4 million USD and a 2.5 million USD contribution from Hallandale Beach itself.

City Manager, Dr. Jeremy Earle, said:

“The City of Hallandale Beach is committed to becoming carbon neutral by 2055, and the Cloud bus fleet is just one of many initiatives we're implementing to achieve this.

“By embracing clean, electric power, we're paving the way for a healthier environment and higher quality of life standards that our residents and visitors can be proud of.”

A complimentary service for the community began on April 5, and includes two new, additional stops to Walmart and Aventura Mall.
