Converting to a more sustainable bus fleet
With a goal of providing the best transportation services for their customers in southeastern Washington state, Ben Franklin Transit (BFT) is looking towards a zero emission future for its bus fleet. They engaged us to perform an analysis of their current operations in order to convert their fixed-route bus fleet to zero emission bus (ZEB) technologies.
Our study identified—on a life cycle basis—the economic costs, performance issues, risks, and recommended timeline associated with transition to a zero emission transit bus fleet. Analysis also considered financial and operational impacts of battery electric transit bus technologies. Study results were presented to the BFT’s board of directors to help better inform their decision making on the transition to a ZEB fleet.
The result of our work helped BFT make decisions in the areas of policy, procurement, and technology as they take this next step towards a more sustainable future.
