Electrifying The Fleet

Above my pay grade to know how difficult it is to solve the various problems, but agencies have been having troubles adopting and integrating electric buses. My own local transit authority, also, too.

More generally I suspect mass adoption of electric cars, a goal which has long incorporated a bit of hand-wavey "we'll figure out that problem," is also going to be much more difficult than people are expecting. And, no, I am not saying this because of my antipathy for Musk.

I don't think California, for example, will stick to its ICE car phaseout by 2035. Happy to be wrong!
