"How can we make our electric buses go as far as diesel buses?" It's a question that every transit operator will ask in their zero-emission journey.

Yet, at the Antelope Valley Transit Authority (AVTA) in California – which operates North America’s first fully zero-emission fleet – electric buses meet and exceed the range of diesels every day. Playing a key role are the 12 automated, high-power wireless on-route charging systems deployed over 100 square miles – no plugs, no moving parts, and nothing overhead.

Presentation Highlights

  • The role wireless charging played in deploying the largest operating battery-electric bus fleet in the nation
  • How wireless charging enables electric buses to run perpetually, easily covering routes that average 290 miles
  • How wireless charging can reduce fleet size and total cost of ownership
