Electric Bus Testing

Next week, we are scheduled to have an electric bus at AU in order to test it out for possible future use.  Since the bus is being tested on several routes, check out TVS announcements next week to see which route the bus is being assigned to on each day and try it out.  If you have an opportunity to ride the bus, we'd love to get your feedback at tigertransit@auburn.edu.
