The University of California, San Francisco has added 15 new all-electric transit vehicles to its inter-campus shuttle network, which serves UCSF employees, faculty, students, patients and guests. The electric shuttles replaced 17 gasoline- and diesel-powered vehicles. A quarter of the university’s fleet is now electric, with a goal of an all-electric fleet within 10 years. UCSF’s shuttle network transports roughly 8,000 passengers a day, driving close to one million miles annually throughout the City. In comparison to their fossil fueled brethren, the battery electric buses will emit 60 metric tons less of CO2.
