Transitioning towards a more sustainable future

Following a mandate from California Air Resources Board that states all transit agencies must be 100% zero emission by 2040, our team is conducting a system-wide analysis comparing Ventura County Transportation Commission’s (VCTC) current fleet of buses to zero-emission buses (ZEBs).

Our goal is to develop a recommended ZEB mode and provide a rollout and operating plan for fleet conversion with all associated infrastructure. The analysis will consider the operational and financial impacts and examine the difference in the capital and operating costs of new battery-electric or hydrogen fuel cell bus technology versus the current fleet technologies, the capital cost of associated ZEB infrastructure, the capital cost of rehabilitation or purchase of interim non-ZEB vehicles and Infrastructure, and the overall operating cost impacts. Of special significance is the need for a rigorous analysis of fleet scheduling/operations with the various range limitations of ZEB buses. Additionally, the financial analysis will consider lifetime/lifecycle costs, payback periods, net present values (NPV), and time sensitivity.

Following our work, VCTC will have a plan to move forward as they transition towards a greener future.
