As we explore ways to incorporate more electric vehicles into our transit operations nationwide, MTM Transit was excited to have the opportunity to test drive the new Ford E-Transit! Our President and CEO Alaina Macia, Chief Marketing Officer Michele Lucas, and Chief Financial Officer Jill Heneghan explored the latest model of the fully electric cutaway vehicle, retrofitted by Creative Bus.
With the Creative Bus retrofit, the Ford E-Transit is a zero-emission, wheelchair accessible, light-duty passenger shuttle. With a flexible seating arrangement and rear lift, the E-Transit allows for 12 passengers, or offers room for two wheelchair tie-down positions.
Thank you to Creative Bus for allowing us to test drive this exciting option for the transit market. As minivans and cutaways within our existing fleets begin to retire, we look forward to replacing them with fully electric and/or hybrid options like the E-Transit. We’re excited to explore these opportunities for going green and making a difference in our industry–and our environment!
