Sustainable Ecosystems and Electric Buses

Tuesday, November 17, 2:00 – 3:30 pm ET
Participants will receive 1.5 CEU planner credits

California’s ambitious Climate Plan sets a goal of transitioning to 100% electric transit by 2040. Several cities, including Los Angeles, have established even more aggressive deadlines. This APTAU CEU Academy workshop explores the role of electric buses in achieving a sustainable transit ecosystem.

Electric buses come with new challenges, and panelists will present approaches to plan charging infrastructure and work with utilities. This panel will also discuss how reaching “zero-carbon” status will depend not only on zero-emission buses, but a holistic approach that considers:

– Seamless charging infrastructure
– Innovations in network connectivity
– Green design
– Adaptable transit planning

We encourage audience interaction and time will be reserved for questions and answers on the future of sustainable public transit.
