Information on Asheville’s Electric Buses, April 2019

Hello City of Asheville,

I'd like to make a request for the following information in regard to Asheville's electric buses:

1. All communications between Protera and the City (from May 01, 2017 - May 01, 2019 [or date the query is performed])

2. The total cost of permanent charging stations.

3. The grant process for Protera electric buses - specifically grant funding for permanent charging stations.

4. Routes tested with electric buses and how long they run on average.

5. Federal grant funding documentation for electric buses, the deadlines for implementation / serviceable hours and when funds would have to be returned if this deadline was not met.

Thank you for your time.
