Thinking Through Zero-Emission Bus Transition Plans

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law requires applicants for zero-emission vehicles to include a Zero-Emission Transition Plan in their competitive bus grant application. In this webinar, hosted by the APTA Zero Emission Fleet Committee, you will hear directly from public transit agencies who have completed their Transition Plans about why a comprehensive Transition Plan is important, and key factors agencies should consider as they develop their own Zero-Emission Transition Plan. For example, how will different propulsion technologies perform in your climate and service environment? What fueling technology is the best fit for your agency? What factors may limit the speed at which you can advance your transition? How can this transition be implemented equitably? In addition, this interactive webinar will provide an opportunity for attendees to ask their questions and join the discussion.
