Cool, but the last sentence, zero carbon transmission system as well. Not if they fire the charges by coal.
NYC is not that big. To move the buses to electric will take 21 years. A weak target.
BUt a plan to transition to electric by 2040 is better than no plan at all.
The problem with just going out and buying a fleet of zero emission electric buses, is to an organisation there would by 2 costs. 1 being the purchase price, and the other being the write off of the existing fleet.
Whereas, with a plan, costs can be managed much better, as vehicle on the fleet reach the end of there useful life, they can be replaced with electric, and gradually the fleet transitions to electric.
