The City of Phoenix is looking at creating a $25 million pilot program for green transit technology and zero emissions buses.
The Phoenix City Council’s Transportation, Infrastructure and Planning is being asked to forward a measure to issue a request for proposals for “transit buses that use zero and/or near-zero emissions technology.”
The RFP would be issued in the spring of 2022 and seeks transit buses powered by battery electric, electric hybrid, and/or hydrogen power,” according to city council documents.
Phoenix is looking for a fleet of approximately 20 buses.
The term of the city contract is five years.
The proposed procurement and renewable energy project is on the subcommittee’s Oct. 20 agenda.
