Serving the community by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving air quality
Serving a California community that values nature and environmental sustainability, El Dorado Transit (EDT) provides local transit commuter service to Sacramento, as well as several demand-response services—including dial-a-ride for communities across western El Dorado County and nearby Lake Tahoe. The EDT is required to meet the California Air Resources Board (CARB) requirements, so we developed a zero emission bus (ZEB) fleet conversion plan that addresses the CARB mandate. Our plan provides EDT with a path to implement a 100 percent zero emission fleet that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions—improving overall air quality in the region.
For the ZEB plan, we analyzed existing conditions, fleet operations, and service. And we engaged a broad array of stakeholders to gain their input on the plan and the suggested service changes. Our team provided route modeling for both fixed-route and demand-response service that will help develop a roadmap for a complete transition of EDT’s revenue and non-revenue fleet. We also recommended facility modifications and upgrades to accommodate the new zero emission bus fleet.
With the requirement for a zero emission fleet, EDT can use our recommendations to take them toward a more sustainable future.
