With new order for electric school buses, Motiv Power Systems sees East Coast opportunities

New York-based Educational Bus Transportation has purchased two new Trans Tech eSeries Type A school bus electric school buses featuring electric chassis from Motiv Power Systems. The company deployed one of the Motiv-powered e-buses in 2014.

The market for electric school buses in California is already growing – Trans Tech delivered 13 electric buses to school districts in the Sacramento region this year. Now Motiv sees opportunities for expansion in New York.

“New York and California are both very attractive markets for battery-electric vehicle applications,” said Motiv Director of Sales Kash Sethi. “The regulatory climate, available funding programs, and population density to suit fixed-route applications support fleets making the transition to electric. As a company with headquarters in the San Francisco Bay Area, we’ve always had a strong presence on the West Coast. With growing demand for electric fleet vehicles, we are ramping up our East Coast footprint in 2018 and beyond.”
