In 2019, Wichita became the first city in Kansas to add 100% electric, zero-emission buses to its fleet. They provide a quiet, comfortable ride, and each overnight charge provides enough power to travel 150 miles. Evergy partners with Wichita Transit to provide lower electricity rates for overnight charging.
In May of 2021, the Q-LINE rolled out an entirely new fleet of battery-electric vehicles.
The existing fleet of 11 battery-electric buses will soon be accompanied by seven additional battery-electric demand-response paratransit. Whenever possible, new vehicle acquisitions will be battery-electric models.
