Madison eyes cleaner bus fleet at Transportation & Innovation Expo

MADISON (WKOW) — A first-of-its-kind conference highlighted Madison’s goals of investing in cleaner transportation methods Thursday.

The Transportation & Innovation Expo gathered the sustainable transportation industry’s top leaders to discuss cleaner transportation methods and sustainably-fueled fleets.

It’s something the City of Madison says it is working toward. Madison’s Fleet Superintendent says the city plans to invest in clean vehicles within the next couple of years.

“By next year, the city of Madison is planning to have 30 plug-in electric vehicles and 60 gas-electric hybrid vehicles,” said Mahanth Joishy.

The conference was held at the Alliant Energy Center.

The expo featured a variety of indoor vehicle and equipment displays. Attendees also had the opportunity to get behind the wheel of a variety of alternative fuel and electric vehicles.
