BYD announces Frederick County TransIT adds more BYD buses to its fleet


BYD Motors, LLC (Los Angeles, California) announced it has delivered U.S.-Built battery-electric K7M buses to Transit Services of Frederick County, Maryland. (TransIT).

The narrow streets of Frederick, Maryland - a notable region of colonial United States - are lined with historic brick buildings, and a perfect fit for BYD’s quiet zero-emission 30-foot K7M battery electric buses. Already, TransIT drivers prefer the BYD buses to navigate the tree-lined byways of Frederick," said Director Roman Steichen.

“We are very happy to have Frederick County TransIT as a repeat customer,” said Patrick Duan, BYD North America Vice President. “We believe their customers will enjoy a ride that is quiet and smooth and great for the environment.” 

Members of the International Association of Sheet Metal, Air, Rail and Transportation Workers – SMART Union, Local 105 - constructed the innovative and technologically superior K7M for historic Frederick TransIT to include 22 seats, and a range of up to 150 miles. The bus has a charging time of 2.5 to 3 hours. The three new BYD buses join a BYD K7M delivered to TransIT in the fall of 2019. The buses, which exceed Buy America requirements, were purchased with grant money from the Federal Transit Administration’s Low- or No-Emission (Low-No) Grant program.
