You can make a difference
by telling the PSTA
how you'd like to see this public agency to spend your tax dollars: buses that will burn diesel and
pollute until 2030
zero emission electric buses whose source of energy will get cleaner every year they're serving our community, as we move forward with solar power. Last week the finance committee recommended buying 9 new diesel buses based on outdated
information, instead of diesel hybrid or electric.

Sample Text: Electric buses protect kids with asthma and seniors with COPD while
providing a quiet,safe ride. They cost less to own and operate than any other bus and
are a good fit for urban routes with frequent stops. Don't take a step backwards from
your sustainability policy by buying new diesel buses. Please make Pinellas County a
leader in cleaner, safer technologies by investing now in new zero-emission electric buses.

Sierra Club is building support now for PSTA to buy its first electric buses. The capital outlay
would be virtually the same as the cost of new diesel buses. Click to see the letter
