A Democratic enclave in Wyoming purchased electric buses to reduce emissions, but the buses are indefinitely inoperable after their manufacturer went bankrupt earlier this summer, the Cowboy State Daily reported.
Jackson, Wyoming, and Teton County formed the Southern Teton Area Rapid Transit (START) system, which bought eight electric buses from Proterra to add to its fleet of 31 diesel buses, the Cowboy State Daily reported. Proterra, which itself was at the center of a conflict of interest controversy including Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm, went bankrupt in August, and START’s eight e-buses are now out of commission given that the manufacturer can no longer readily supply the parts needed for repairs.

They used the kodak formula for their buses? Give the buses for cheap and then a monthly fee for an operating software?
History certainly does repeat itself.
Of course, their heads were up their asses...
The state should make any registered Democrat in that area to wear a big D on their clothes, everywhere they go.
If they try to get on a bus, make them walk.
Doesn’t that dingbat of a VP just love a bus! (Shrieking) Who doesn’t love a bus!
And a Venn diagram.
My brain just went tilt. No compriendo, padre. Isn't this like a rural area, and a place where it gets really really really really freezing cold weather - like minus 20 F on a warm day. So, Rapid Transit? Electric? My hair hurts.
And then this part eight e-buses are now out of commission given that the manufacturer can no longer readily supply [no kidding Sherlock-its bankrupt] the parts needed for repairs
An ill-advised plan goes through because of corruption and left-wing super rich dingbattery and anyone is surpised at the outcome?
Don’t feel bad, my state is building a 50b bullet train to nowhere and just so they can say they ‘created jobs’. Yeah, jobs for the trade unions that funnel millions back to the politicains.
The CA state govt is populated by con men and charlatans.
Think of all the money they saved on gas...
Ah yes, Jackson Hole, WY, about the only deep blue enclave in the state of Wyoming.
Parts needed for repairs? I thought EVs were “essentially maintenance-free”.
Could it be the EV advocates are stretching the truth?
Well, they can always move three or four family's of illegal invaders into each one...
[ I thought EVs were “essentially maintenance-free”.]
Yes, because they had fewer “moving parts,” now apparently including the entire bus itself.
All ya need is a couple of red necks or maybe rich from rich rebuilds. Rob parts from the to far gone to keep the others going
The big brain Chinese have a lot of used ones available....
They are green con-men and yet they are not Martians. Go figure.
