RACINE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The city of Racine is going green this week by unveiling a new fleet of all-electric buses.
The city will add nine emissions-free buses Wednesday, April 27.
Twenty-five percent of Racine's transit fleet will be electrified, making it the largest electric fleet in the state of Wisconsin.
Racine was awarded more than $10 million from both the state and the U.S. Department of Transportation to help pay for the buses.
Racine was the only city in Wisconsin to receive this allocation, and one of only 41 other transit jurisdictions nationwide to receive this funding.
