Metro Buying More Zero Emission Busses; Launches ‘Good Manners’ Campaign

By City News Service

Metro officials announced Tuesday that they have signed a contract with New Flyer of America for dozens of zero-emission and compressed natural gas buses to help the agency reach its goal of a 100 percent zero-emission fleet by 2030.

“Metro is fully committed to improving the health of people across the region — and these new electric buses will help improve air quality and reduce noise pollution,” said Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, chair of the Metro board.

The transportation agency also announced an online and print etiquette campaign to raise public awareness about proper behavior while riding its buses and trains.

The Metro Manners campaign uses anime characters and focuses on what the agency said are some of the most common etiquette problems on the transportation system, including seat-hogging, blocking aisles and eating and drinking while riding.
