It’s a small step for transportation in Juneau, but perhaps a giant leap towards the city’s future. The community’s first electric bus goes into service this week.
On Juneau Afternoon today, a look at what electric vehicle enthusiasts hope to learn. How it could pave the way for more electric cars on our roadways. Guests: Duff Mitchell, Juneau Hydro Power. Devon Kibby, Juneau Electric Vehicles Association.
Also, while you probably know that Mark Hamilton is a retired general and former president of the University of Alaska, perhaps you didn’t know he’s a poet. He shares a few of his poems with us on Juneau Afternoon — and talks about how our modern world needs poetry today, more than ever.
