Call on the Port Authority of Allegheny County to go fossil fuel-free by 2040

The Port Authority of Allegheny County is finalizing its plan for the next 25 years of public transportation in the region. Excitingly, the plan sets an ambitious goal to move the Port Authority’s entire bus fleet to zero-emission vehicles. However, the plan also allows for gas-powered buses -- and says nothing about where the power to run these electric buses should come from, which runs counter to the zero-emissions goal.

The Port Authority is currently holding a public comment period to get input on their proposed plan. Send them an email asking them to remove gas buses from their plan to ensure that they can achieve a fossil fuel-free bus fleet by 2040.
