Ebus to Build Buses for L.A., Democrats

Posted on July 8, 1999

The Los Angeles Department of Water & Power Wednesday awarded a contract for 18 electric buses to Ebus Inc. of Downey, CA. The order helps Los Angeles meet its transportation commitments to host the two high-profile conventions: 1999 National League of Cities Convention in December 1999 and the even bigger prize, the August 2000 Democratic National Convention. The order consists of 15 transit buses and three trolley replicas. Both models seat 22 passengers and feature ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) required components as standard equipment. The electric powered buses achieve a top speed of 40 mph and have a range of 50-60 miles. “Our entire organization is excited,” said Bill Webster, president of Ebus. “Thousands of delegates, members of the press, and millions of television viewers will have the chance to witness Ebus electric buses in action.” At the conclusion of the Democratic National Convention, the buses will be deployed in local cities, campuses and transit agencies to meet other Southern California public transit needs. Delivery is expected by December 1999. Ebus’ Website is www.ebus.com
