Are you prepared to switch to electric?

Infrastructure installation timing

When switching to electric, it’s important to plan ahead. It could take anywhere from six to 12 months to install an electric charging infrastructure at your facility.

Parking space

Does your current lot have the appropriate layout to accommodate charging multiple electric buses for several hours or overnight?

Technician training

Do you have properly trained technicians to work on electric school buses?

Driver training

Contrary to popular belief, driving an electric school bus is very different from traditional bus chassis. Driver training is essential when switching to electric vehicles.

Phase-in approach

Making the switch to electric is a big change. We highly recommend starting by incorporating electric vehicles into your existing fleet, rather than replacing large quantities at a time.

Grant funding

Be sure to utilize consulting resources to help you navigate the process of applying for electric school bus grant funding.
