    Test: Electric Bus

    Disney is testing a new bus this summer. All Electric. The initial plan is to test the bus out of Fort Wilderness internally. They will also test the bus for CMs in the backstage area of Epcot.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Even though Disney is currently updating and replacing some its standard buses they are still investigating electric buses. Another Electric bus is being tested this month manned with Disney Bus Drivers.

    Wondered how long it would take them to get electric buses. Way cheaper to run than diesel or natural gas.



    You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.

    I'd agree right now for most cities. Electricity is big business but Reedy Creek supplies Disney's power and Disney for all intent purposes controls Reedy Creek, so Disney isn't forking out what other would be from a 'for profit' electric company.
