Zero Emission, Double-Decker, Electric Buses

The world's first delivery of pure electric double decker tourist buses!

I get nerdy about this kind of stuff, so you’ll have to humor me. I was surprised to learn that a double decker coach Electric Vehicle even existed, I was chuffed to also learn that there are other fleets of electric busses across the US, (although they’re not Double deckers) but still a huge step in the right direction. [faith in humanity partially restored]

Take a look at some of the images I shot at Compass Transportation showing off these amazing vehicles.

The very memorably named “C10MS” is an electric double decker and is positioned as a luxury tourist bus. It has a range of 235 miles (about 378 kilometers) on a single charge, has 71 seats and is equipped with a restroom. They are also extremely quiet with the only sound being that from the tires and the whir of it’s electric motors. This fleet of 10 busses will serve Biotech firm Genentech and help their employees with their daily commute to and from San Francisco.

This is the first time that manufacturer BYD had delivered the C10MS globally and I hope it will the first of many, many more to come.
