Zero-Emission Public Transit Fleet Systems - Year two

Electrification of transit vehicles is a part of Ontario’s long-term strategy to reduce transportation-related greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. However, transit agencies and utility/local distribution companies face significant technological and operational hurdles in integrating “off the shelf” electric bus technologies. The postdoctoral fellow collaborating with Canadian Urban Transit Research & Innovation Consortium will work with transit agencies and utilities to overcome the technical challenges associated with a lack of international standardization for overhead charging systems. Also, given the absence of neutral demonstration and trial data regarding vehicle and charging station performance in real world conditions, this project will provide a cost comparative model for the lifecycle degradation of both electric and diesel buses.
