At Foothill Transit, we embrace sustainability because it benefits all aspects of our business, while also helping our communities by protecting the environment through measured and responsible stewardship of resources. We believe in sustainable transportation so much, in fact, that we are committed to operating a 100% electric bus fleet by the year 2030.
LET’S CLEAR THE AIR
Foothill Transit has led the charge in sustainable transportation for years. It’s why we were the FIRST IN THE COUNTRY to put fast-charge electric buses on the roads. It’s why we consistently monitor and measure the environmental impact of everything we do. And it’s why we’re committed to operating a 100% ELECTRIC BUS FLEET BY 2030. Because we believe in guilt-free trips. In exploring the earth — not exploiting it. And that with your help, we can make SAVING OUR PLANET as simple as going for a ride.
