Long Beach Transit in Long Beach, California, is purchasing 14 additional BYD zero-emission K9M 40-foot buses.
The order more than doubles the number of BYD buses in its fleet.
LBT joins Los Angeles Department of Transportation, Anaheim Resort Transportation, and numerous other agencies as repeat customers of BYD’s battery-electric buses.
BYD and Berkshire Hathaway
In 2008, Berkshire Hathaway bet on BYD’s potential, purchasing 225 million shares. It’s an investment that has paid off handsomely. Berkshire’s original investment of $230 million has grown in value almost ten-fold, and is now worth roughly $1.96 billion.
