In The News...

  • 12.3.21 | Pierce Transit

    Pierce Transit continues its pursuit toward improved sustainability with the addition of six 40-foot GILLIG electric buses, which went into service this week. The agency explains the new vehicles are similar in appearance, operation and componentry to its existing compressed natural gas (CNG) buses, also made by GILLIG, and these parallels will help save Pierce Transit maintenance and training costs with the new electric buses. The propulsion system for these electric buses is manufactured by Cummins and features battery packs and an electric traction motor versus the standard engine and transmission. The buses can travel between 150 and 170 miles on a single charge (actual figures can vary based on driving conditions).
