This month Walt Disney World Transportation is testing one all-electric bus. This test model is being driven by transportation cast members at Walt Disney World, but not for long. Testing is scheduled to end mid-November. The all-electric bus is not a Disney-owned vehicle and is quieter than traditional buses. Disney is doing the testing due to the fact that electric vehicles are becoming more common within the passenger transit industry. Disney has nothing to announce at this time as to whether they will be converting it’s fleet to electric buses. For now, this is just one bus in testing – for a very limited time – and nothing more.
In doing my research for “electric Disney bus” however, I stumbled on the photos included in this post. This is an awesome and imaginative concept created by Joshua Cunning (for entertainment purposes only). Josh dreams of the future Disney transportation coming to us in this proposed system called the ULTra transportation system. He explains that is would consist of small, lightweight, computer driven electric vehicles running on slender, special-purpose guide-ways. Just imagine for a moment what it might be like to travel around property in one of these! Who knows what the future could hold?
