Twin Transit Electric Bus Demonstration to Give Riders Free Trips Between Twin Cities

An electric bus, provided by Complete Coach Works, will be available for free transit between Centralia and Chehalis on Monday and Tuesday.

Twin Transit is set to demonstrate electric bus technology for free all day on Monday and Tuesday.

“The way the bus is powered is with electric propulsion and not diesel — it’s a more energy-efficient design than traditional buses,” Twin Transit General Manager Derrick Wojcik-Damers said. “We want to get a feel of the public’s reaction. We want the public to be as engaged as much as possible.” 

Route 32 will leave the Centralia Train Depot every hour from 6:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. The one-hour loop between Centralia and Chehalis includes stops along the Miracle Mile, Sunbird Shopping Center, Walmart and historic downtown Chehalis.

Complete Coach Works will provide the electric transit bus for the demonstration.
