California To Electrify Airport Shuttles By 2035
Airport shuttles are next on CARB’s list
As the transition to a 100% zero-emission public bus fleet by 2040 was secured, the California Air Resources Board is preparing another legislation for zero-emissions airport shuttles.
The idea is to require fixed route airport shuttles at California’s 13 largest airports to be zero-emission by 2035. There are almost 1,000 public and private airport shuttles operated at those airports.
Three steps are planned:
- 33% of in-use fleet to be zero-emission by 2027
- 66% of in-use fleet to be zero-emission by 2031
- 100% of in-use fleet to be zero-emission by 2035
A public hearing for the topic is planned on February 21, 2019.
