Advocate for Electric Buses for TriMet this Wednesday

Join us at the TriMet Board Meeting Wednesday 22 January to advocate for electric buses.

TriMet consumes 6 million gallons of diesel every year. At 20lbs of CO2 per gallon, that 67,000 tons of CO2 per year, plus the unhealthy particulates rampant in diesel, that TriMet sends into our air.

Of course, the mission of transit is important, but we must also be committed to taking on the challenge of the climate crisis.

MultDems platform and resolutions call on us to take on the climate crisis aggressively. If you share that belief, attend the TriMet Board meeting Wednesday, 22 January at 9am, World Trade Center Plaza Conference Room 121 SW Salmon. Local activists will be testifying and calling for a stronger support of electric buses that can have a significant impact on our communities’ health and our shared carbon footprint.
