Elk Grove Acquires Five More Buses

The City of Elk Grove just added five more e-trans buses to its existing fleet. This brings the total number of e-tran buses in Elk Grove to 63.

Where did the Buses Come From?

The five used buses came from an acquisition between Elk Grove and Merced County. No money came from the Elk Grove transit fund to acquire the buses. Elk Grove acquired the buses through the Transit Joint Powers Authority (TJPA) in Merced County through a one-year process. City of Elk Grove members learned about 20 Merced County buses becoming available at a transit conference. Elk Grove eventually was offered 5 of the 20 buses. The TJPA in Merced County decided to change the fuel technology of its fleet of buses. This caused the 20 Merced County buses to be made available to local communities.

When Will the Used Buses Be in Service?

The transfer of ownership from Merced County to Elk Grove is in progress. As soon as that is finished, the buses will remove the old decals, and the e-tran decals will be put in place. Elk Grove City’s transit manager estimates the buses will be in service sometime between May and June 2016.
