The Chicago Transit Authority’s first all-electric-powered buses will hit the road today.

The two new buses are part of the agency’s efforts to make city buses more efficient and cleaner for the environment.

The buses are powered by an electric charger before each run.

They’re colorful, so they’ll stand out from the rest of the pack.

They’ll travel popular tourist routes, like the #7 Harrison, #120 Ogilvie/Streeterville Express, #121 Union/Streeterville Express, #124 Navy Pier, #125 Water Tower Express, and #157 Streeterville/Taylor.

The CTA is the first of any major U-S transit agency to use all electric-powered buses as part of regular service.
