CITY HALL — The City Council on Tuesday unanimously approved the purchase of a hydrogen hybrid fuel-cell transit bus, expanding upon the city’s efforts to move toward a more environmentally friendly infrastructure.
The energy-friendly bus will further Burbank’s green credentials, officials said.
“This is another step in creating a more sustainable infrastructure in our fleets,” Mayor Marsha Ramos said. “This is another step in creating transportation improvements [that] enhance our alternative fuel portfolio.”
The purchase also fits into efforts to transform the area’s landscape, she said.
“This bus is one component to achieve [environmental] sustainability in our city,” Ramos said. “We are greening our city by planting more trees, improving our energy- and water-conservation efforts, and creating mixed-use, pedestrian-friendly developments.”
