Cost Change

Cost decrease is due to the type and number of buses due for replacement.
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 has applied for grants to cover the incremental cost of additional electric buses. If successful, it is expected that the number of small diesels in FY21 would be reduced in favor of electric buses. Electric buses comprise 40 percent of new bus purchases in FY21 and could increase further if the Department of Transportation is successful on two (Federal and State) bus grant applications. 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.
