As part of Charles' commitment to improving traffic congestion, he sits on the San Mateo County Transit District (SamTrans) Board of Directors and is honored to be serving as Chair of the Board this year.
Yesterday, SamTrans unveiled one of its 10 electric buses poised to hit the streets in just a few weeks.
Charles was featured in the KCBS piece covering the event and quoted in the San Francisco Chronicle: "We're incredibly excited because in March we announced we will not procure any more diesel buses." "I can hear myself think on this bus,” SamTrans board Chairman Charles Stone said of the new electric shuttle. “It just sounds so much nicer. You don’t have that diesel belching noise or that air brake hissing that you get with the traditional combustion engine.”
