Lynwood Unified added three new all-electric school buses to its fleet, reducing air pollution and costs while boosting child safety.
The new eLion Type C buses can travel 75 miles when fully charged. A charging station will be installed at the District’s bus barn. The eLion vehicle will reduce exposure to smog-forming pollution, reduce costs for fuel, oil and transmission fluid, and offer a longer use of brakes. The vehicle also features 18-inch aisles, roomier than the standard 12-inch space, for comfortable student mobility. The electric motor provides a quiet ride.
