MADISON, Wis. — Today, the City of Racine unveiled a new fleet of nine electric buses, the largest of its kind in the state of Wisconsin. Assembly Democratic Leader Greta Neubauer (D-Racine) released the following statement in support:
“It’s a new day in Racine! Our fleet of electric buses represents a new beginning for sustainable transportation in Racine and a step forward for all of Wisconsin. I’m so excited to see Racine lead the way in making our communities and public transportation more sustainable.
“We’re all feeling the impacts of increased costs for energy. We know that moving away from fossil fuels sooner will help lower costs for Wisconsinites — and by creating sustainable public transportation options like our new electric bus fleet, we’re doing just that.
“I want to thank everyone involved in this process for their hard work in making sure that Racine lives up to its reputation as a smart and sustainable city. Thank you to Governor Tony Evers, Mayor Cory Mason, Racine Transit Manager Trevor Jung, and all of our local and federal partners for helping to make today happen.”
