technology/large/laptop-1 Created with Sketch. Simplifying Electrification: Easing the Transition for Public Transportation

As funding and incentives increase for the electrification of public transport, the need for simplifying and easing the transition to electric buses and shuttles has become apparent. There are numerous considerations to factor into your plans, such as vehicle procurement, operational impacts such as route changes, charging and other infrastructure to name just a few. How can you be sure your plan accounts for all potential impacts and affords a smooth transition to full-scale EV for your riders? How do you know you have the best partners and can gain access to critical funds? Siloed approaches and one-off pilots seem like progress, but often lead to inconclusive data or misinformed plans. Join Reuters and Hitachi for an informative discussion around potential impacts and considerations, ways to simplify the transition to electrification, and how to leverage the learnings of other transit authorities and choose the right ecosystem of partners to ensure successful planning, pilots and scaling of an electric fleet.
