Electric Buses and the Sustainable Transit Ecosystem
Recorded On: 11/17/2020
This APTAU CEU Academy workshop explores the role of electric buses in achieving a sustainable transit ecosystem. California’s ambitious Climate Plan sets a goal of transitioning to 100% electric transit by 2040. Several cities like Los Angeles, have established an even nearer-term deadline. This panel will discuss how getting to zero carbon will depend not only on zero-emission buses--but a holistic approach that considers seamless charging infrastructure, innovations in network connectivity, green design, and adaptable transit planning.
This webinar will be interactive with audience Q&A and plenty of time for panelists to share experiences and imagine the future of sustainable transit.
Participants will receive 1.5 CEU planner credits.
