School Bus Type A

All-electric school buses provide students and operators with a healthier, smoother, and quieter ride by eliminating toxic tail-pipe emissions, vibrations, and noise. School buses are ideal candidates for electrification because they typically are operated on fixed-routes and in return-to-depot patterns.

Motiv has been electrifying school buses and serving students since 2013. School bus fleet customers include over 20 school districts across four states.
