Mountain Rides Facebook


If all goes according to plan, folks in the Wood River Valley could be riding electric buses next summer. Mountain Rides Transportation Authority — Sun Valley’s public transportation organization — has plans to replace its entire diesel fuel fleet with electric beginning in 2021.

Joining Idaho Matters live to talk more about this plan are Wally Morgus, executive director of Mountain Rides, and Jason Marenda, senior project engineer for POWER Engineers.
