 Buses from the Rest of the World ...
 USA - North America's first electric double-decker - March 2021
 
The following is taken from Foothill Transit's website:-

"Foothill Transit, the American public transportation leader in electric bus deployment, has purchased two electric versions of the Alexander Dennis Inc. (ADI) double deck bus. The twin Enviro500EVs made their way from the UK and will debut in the Foothill Transit’s Southern California fleet this year. Now that the all-electric double deck buses have arrived in the California, they will undergo a branding transformation to look like the Foothill Transit buses you know and love."

Foothill Transit first demonstrated the ADI double deck bus on its downtown Los Angeles routes in October 2016. The customer response was overwhelmingly enthusiastic, proving that California was hungry for good design, smart public transit, and vastly improved ride quality. The Enviro500EV will be 13’6” tall and will be completely zero emissions thanks to an ADI partnership with Proterra, who will supply the battery and drive train technology. Foothill Transit already operates 30 Proterra electric buses in its fleet. This bus acquisition is part of Foothill Transit’s commitment to go all-electric by 2030.
