Build Your Dreams announced that its customers battery-electric buses have logged a US record 13 million miles of zero-emission operations, in the process saving over 16,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions. More than 50 customers across the United States are operating US made BYD buses in communities from Martha’s Vineyard and Indianapolis to Palo Alto and Los Angeles. Zero-emission mileage logged by US BYD customers is the equivalent mileage of more than 520 trips around the globe.Every zero-emission bus eliminates approximately 1,690 tonnes of CO2 over its 12-year lifespan. BYD’s 13-million-mile emission-free landmark is the equivalent of removing 13,000 cars from the road, enough to fill the parking lot at Angels Stadium of Anaheim. Stacked on top of each other, those cars would be three times taller than Mt Everest. BYD is proudly Buy America compliant.

The 13 million emission-free miles traveled by BYD buses have eliminated the need for transit agencies and operators to consume 3.3 million gallons of diesel fuel resulting in millions of dollars in savings to US taxpayers

One BYD customer, the Antelope Valley Transit Authority, announced last month it crossed the 3-million-mile mark in zero emission operations. The AVTA estimates it has saved 769,231 gallons of diesel fuel, which equates to a savings of more than USD 1 million in fuel costs after paying for electricity.
