Indianapolis operator IndyGo has taken delivery of 13 American-built BYD K11 18-metre articulated buses, and plans to have a total of 31 by the end of the year. The emission-free battery-electric buses will be used on the Red Line route which runs to and from the University of Indianapolis as part of the operator’s plans to replace all its diesel buses with electric ones by 2032.

“We are very proud to be part of this new, important service for Indianapolis and Marion County,” said Bobby Hill, Vice President of BYD North America. “We have worked – and will continue to work – closely with IndyGo to ensure their success. IndyGo is a forward-thinking transit agency and we applaud their transformation to an all-electric transit fleet.”
