K9s Electric Transit Bus

Cleanest and Quietest 35ft transit bus you’ve ever seen.

SAVING YOU THOUSANDS

Our buses save you tons from lower costs in fuel and maintenance. Fewer moving parts, more reliability, and environmentally friendly with a payback in only a few years — buying a BYD electric bus makes cents.

NON-TOXIC BATTERIES

Unlike Lead-Acid and most Lithium-ion batteries, BYD’s chemistry features environmentally friendly and non-toxic ingredients. This means no ventilation needed, no water needed and no worry needed.

QUIET COMMUNITY

Our transit buses are not only good for the air but also good for the ears. The K9s Electric Transit Bus reduces your fleet’s noise pollution and is half the noise of Diesel, Hybrid or CNG transit Buses.

INDUSTRY'S BEST WARRANTY

BYD is the only bus manufacturer that can stand by a 12-year lifetime warranty on the batteries. This means our buses saves you hundreds of thousands by not needing a mid-life battery replacement.
