BYD delivered three battery-electric K7M buses to Transit Services of Frederick County, Md.(TransIT).
TransIT provides public transit, paratransit, and commuter services/employer outreach information throughout Frederick County, serving medical, employment, education, and shopping centers.
Members of the International Association of Sheet Metal, Air, Rail and Transportation Workers — SMART Union, Local 105 — constructed the innovative K7M for historic Frederick TransIT to include 22 seats, and a range of up to 150 miles.
The bus has a charging time of 2.5 to three hours. The three new BYD buses join a BYD K7M delivered to TransIT in the fall of 2019. The buses, which exceed Buy America requirements, were purchased with grant money from the Federal Transit Administration’s Low-or No-Emission Grant program.
