Alison Wiley writes Electrifying Transit, an e-newsletter that supports public transit's moving from diesel to electric buses. From 2008 to 2017 Alison worked for the Public Transit Division of the Oregon Department of Transportation. There she led the Governor's Commuter Challenge to a successful carbon-reducing conclusion, and later developed ODOT’s web-page on Transit Fleet Electrification. In prior years she worked for Oregon League of Conservation Voters and Opal Creek Ancient Forest Center.
