As MTS strives to convert its entire bus fleet to zero-emission by 2040, a key first step is building enough charging capacity to power an electric fleet. An early milestone in the infrastructure development process for MTS has been completed at one of the agency’s five bus divisions. Join us for an exciting tour of this new $8.5 million overhead gantry system capable of charging 24 battery-electric buses at a time. The charging technology consists of Heliox’s Flex 180 kw power cabinets, and Schunk’s SLS 301 series Depot Charging Pantograph. The tour will include a charging demonstration of the system, and MTS experts will be on hand to lead the tour and answer questions.
Space is limited. Once capacity is reached, a waitlist will go into effect.
