Supervisor Hahn Demands Metro Immediately Take Diesel Buses off Street after Latest Bus Fire
Today, Supervisor Janice Hahn is demanding that Metro’s fleet of aging diesel buses be taken off the road immediately after a diesel bus caught fire this morning in Redondo Beach. According to Metro, there are 32 of these buses currently in service.
“It has been brought to my attention that yet another Metro bus has caught fire-- this time in Redondo Beach. This bus is part of an aging fleet of diesel buses, several of which have caught fire in recent years. Late last year, I ordered that Metro expedite replacement of each of these old diesel buses, however, it is clear that this process is not moving quickly enough. These buses are dangerous and must be taken off our roads immediately.”
