Baton Rouge orders 3 BYD electric buses

Baton Rouge, LA has ordered three US-made BYD K9S electric buses under the authority of the Capital Area Transit System (CATS).

The bus has a range of approximately 150 miles (241 km) on a single charge and a capacity of up to 32 passengers, depending on configuration. BYD buses are projected to cost roughly $1.00 less per mile to operate than the typical diesel-powered bus.

CATS operates 29 bus lines and provides more than 2 million rides each year.
