Penn Transit Rolls Out 'Cleaner, Greener' Wheels

September 23, 2010

Over the past two years, Penn Transit has purchased eight new low emission vehicles  – all in support of Penn’s Climate Action Plan. The most recent additions – four new propane powered shuttle vans will hit the road this September, and to celebrate the event, Penn Transit created new green-themed wraps for all the cleaner, greener vehicles.  The stylish new buses and shuttles will hit the street later this month.
