One of the largest savings in fuel consumption and largest reductions in greenhouse gases is the Avon Regional Transportation Facility. With the ability to garage up to 24 buses, the ARTF means less warm up time and no more cold start ups for Avon Transit buses as well as other area transit providers.
Avoncurrently owns four hybrid gasoline-electric Ford Escapes. In addition, the town has five high-efficiency buses in service, which are on average 80% more fuel efficient than 2007 and older buses as well as one hybrid diesel/electricbus. These vehicles help to reduce air pollution, greenhouse gas emissions, and Avon’s fuel bills.
