A public transit authority in Washington state which includes the city of Seattle has announced a massive purchase of up to 120 battery-electric buses from New Flyer. King County Executive Dow Constantine announced Thursday that King County Metro has agreed to purchase 40 battery-electric Xcelsior CHARGE buses from Winnipeg-based New Flyer, Inc., to be delivered in 2021 and plans to order 80 more in the coming year – a major milestone in the county’s efforts to improve air quality, reduce carbon and create a zero-emissions bus fleet by 2040, officials said.
