Zero Emission Bus Planning and Deployment: Session 2
Includes a Live 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, 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.
