WANADA Attends Electric School Bus Event with Area Politicos

On October 19, WANADA President & CEO John O’Donnell attended an electric bus demonstration and showcase at the K Neal Truck & Bus Center in Hyattsville, MD, with other members of the WANADA staff.  Among the attendees were Rep. Anthony Brown, Lt. Gov. Boyd Rutherford, MD State Sen. Malcolm Augustine and Del. David Fraser-Hidalgo.  Mr. O’Donnell and the staff were able to enjoy some face time with the gathered officials while learning more about electrification in the heavy truck and bus industry.  Korey Neal, President of K. Neal Truck and Bus Center, said, “Back in the early 1900s we had the transition from horse and buggy to cars, I think this is that same type of transformation. Infrastructure is going to have to catch up, but at the end of the day, this is the right thing for our sustainability as we go forward.”
