King County, Washington, Purchases 24 Azure Dynamics Balance Hybrid Electric Buses

Azure Dynamics Corporation announced the sale of 24 Balance Hybrid Electric buses to King County, Washington for its Access Transportation services.

King County was able to award this contract with the support of Federal Transit Administration (FTA) stimulus funds aimed at providing fuel-efficient and more environmentally friendly transportation solutions. Under a competitive bid process the contract was awarded to EK Coaches, the dealership of record, for the Azure Balance Hybrid Electric drivetrain on a Ford E450 chassis.

StarTrans Bus, a Supreme Corporation company, provided the 22-foot shuttle bus bodies with a capacity of up to 12 seated passengers plus two wheelchair positions. The vehicles are expected to be delivered later this year.



One of the most progressive Counties in the US. Congratulations on making some smart choices and further prompting the electrification of transport.
