Due to forecasts calling for thunderstorms this Friday, the Iowa City Transit's Electric Bus Bash has been moved to 2 to 4 p.m. on Friday, May 6, 2022, at Riverfront Crossings Park, 1001 S. Clinton St.

The celebration of the City's four new electric buses will feature tours of an electric City bus, speakers, light refreshments, e-bikes, educational EV information, giveaways, and more fun! 

Join Mayor Bruce Teague and other leaders as we celebrate this exciting step forward in our mission for zero carbon emissions by 2050. To learn more about Iowa City's climate action goals, visit icgov.org/ClimateAction

Iowa City’s Climate Action and Adaptation Plan identifies shifting 55% of vehicular trips to more sustainable methods of transportation such as biking, walking, EVs, or transit as a key strategy to reducing emissions. The electric buses, which were funded through state and federal grants, as well as through a partnership with MidAmerican Energy Company, will help make these goals possible. 

Last year, Iowa City Transit began service improvements to create faster, more frequent, more reliable, and more affordable transit service with a goal of improving service for those that rely on it most, and making it an easier choice for others. To learn more about our Transit system, visit icgov.org/Transit

In case of adverse weather on May 6, the event will be held on the first floor of the Chauncey Swan Parking Ramp, 415 E. Washington St., at the same time and date.
