  • Zero Emission Bus Planning and Deployment: Session 2

    Includes Credits Includes a Live Web Event on 03/31/2021 at 2:00 PM (EDT)

    This APTAU CEU Academy two-part series provides training on zero emission bus (ZEB) deployments. This second session focuses on ZEB and infrastructure procurement and deployment, including topics such as developing technical specifications, infrastructure installation, and performance monitoring. Registration fees: Member - $49 / Non-members $99

    This APTAU CEU Academy two-part series provides training on zero emission bus (ZEB) deployments, based on the best practices identified in the Guidebook for Deploying Zero Emission Transit Buses, funded through the Transportation Research Board (TRB) of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. 

    This second session focuses on ZEB procurement and deployment.  Participants will come away with an understanding of aspects of the bus and infrastructure technical specifications that are different from conventional vehicle procurements; considerations for charging or hydrogen fueling infrastructure installation; and how to monitor and manage ZEB performance once buses are in service.

    The series is geared towards transit agency planners, project managers, bus operations staff, and bus maintenance staff who are either preparing to deploy ZEBs; deploying their first fleet of ZEBs; or beginning to explore the next phase of ZEB deployment.

    Training instructors are from the Center for Transportation and the Environment, the authors of the 2020 TRB Guidebook for Deploying Zero Emission Transit Buses.  Attendees will be given a short “homework assignment” to complete before the training. 

    The session will be interactive with audience Q&A. Attendees will also hear from at least one transit agency in each session for a real world demonstration of the concepts being taught in the training.

    Participants may receive either 1.5 CEU planner credits or 1.5 CEU engineering credits for this session.

  • Microtransit

    Includes Credits Recorded On: 12/15/2020

    Equity. Safety. Sustainability. These are King County Metro’s core values. Learn how these values were incorporated into the development and iteration of their first/last mile pilots, and how they are used as the yardstick by which the pilots are evaluated. This presentation will discuss the tactics used to achieve equity, safety, and sustainability, as well as the challenges, tradeoffs, costs, and benefits of leading with these values.

    This webinar, the third in a series of follow-up webinars to the Sustainability and Multimodal Planning Virtual Workshop, will explore the actual implementation of Microtransit programs in Tampa and Seattle.

    The first presentation will initially focus on HART’s Hyperlink program that ran between 2017 and 2018 and the challenges associated with operating this model sustainably.  It will also look at our subsequent attempts to launch more progressive and sustainable programs since that time.  Currently HART is working to deploy a comprehensive Microtransit program that includes both point-to-point and fixed route circulator service together. During this process, staff has encountered multiple challenges in navigating complex procurement and funding.
