Cost Change

Change due to the mix of bus types, with a phaseout of hybrid buses and an increasing reliance on electric buses. Expanded acquisition of electric buses in FY22 and FY23.
anchor

Justification

The full-size transit buses have an expected useful life of twelve years. Smaller buses have an expected useful life of ten years. Microtransit buses have an expected life of four years.
anchor

Other

MCDOT will continue to apply for grants to cover the incremental cost of additional electric buses. In FY21 and FY22, electric buses comprise 67 and 100 percent of new bus purchases, respectively. This exceeds standards compared to most other transit agencies. For example, California, considered a leader in zero bus emissions implementation, recently enacted a regulation that will require all large transit agencies to include at least 25 percent zero emission buses in their new bus purchases beginning in 2023.
