Ride the Complete Coach Works – ZEPS Electric Bus

The Sunset Empire Transportation District will hold a demonstration of an all-electric bus Monday.

“Technology is rapidly evolving with electric buses and (Sunset Empire) wants to make sure that we continue to look into and evaluate if electric propulsion will work for us going forward,” Jeff Hazen, the district’s executive director, said in a release.

The transportation district will run an electric bus from Complete Coach Works on Route 10 between the Emerald Heights housing complex, Astoria, Warrenton and Hammond.

The public can ride for free starting at 8:51 a.m. and hourly thereafter from the Astoria Transit Center until 3:37 p.m.

“We chose the Route 10 to test performance as there are several hills on that route” Hazen said.
