Minimizing transit impacts to the environment
As part of their goal to stay ahead of industry trends, Tri Delta Transit made a commitment to lowering their carbon footprint and minimize their impact on the environment. Our team was there to help them along the way.
Following over two years of research, planning, and testing, Tri-Delta Transit began operating their first battery electric transit bus. As part of the pilot program, they launched a total of four battery electric buses. The new 40-foot electric buses are used throughout the service area and carry up to 38 seated passengers with up to another 18 riders standing. Like all Tri-Delta Transit buses, the new electric buses are ramp-equipped to accommodate wheelchairs and mobility devices, have priority seating for seniors and people with disabilities, and exterior bike racks that can accommodate up to two bikes. The buses can drive for more than 100 miles on a single charge. Our role on this project consisted of a study and design for installation of four bus charging stations and five electric vehicle charging pedestals at the Tri-Delta Transit Maintenance Facility. Each bus charger has the capacity to charge two buses. This was a federally funded project with Tri-Delta transit matching the federal award.
As a result of our work, Tri Delta Transit was able to test out four electric buses, continuing their leadership in their goal to a zero-emission future.
