CCW TO DELIVER FIVE ZEPS BUSES TO NORTHEAST TRANSIT AGENCY
Complete Coach Works (CCW) of Riverside, California is providing TransIT Services of Frederick County, MD, with five buses that have been completely refurbished and equipped with CCW’s Zero Emission Propulsion System (ZEPS), an all-electric battery-powered motor. The first electric bus is expected to be delivered in February with the other four following closely behind in the proceeding months.
The cost of the five ZEPS buses and charging stations is being covered by a combination of federal (FTA), state (MTA) and local grant funding. A Maryland Energy Administration grant is providing the local match for one bus and also helping with the cost of installing 10 charging stations at the transit agency’s yard. As an indication of TransIT’s commitment to the ZEPS-powered buses, the construction project will include laying conduit for future construction of 10 more charging stations.
