ZEUS ELECTRIC SHUTTLE BUS AND THE CALIFORNIA STATE COMPLIANT SOLUTION
The Morongo Basin Transit Authority (“MBTA”) and California Association for Coordinated Transportation (“CALACT”) have selected Phoenix Motorcars’ ZEUS Zero Emission Shuttles as an eligible vehicle. Transit agencies who are members of CALACT can now purchase the ZEUS all-electric shuttle bus through a federal and California State compliant purchasing solution, avoiding lengthy & expensive RFPs and bid processes.
This also enables transit agencies to select vehicles of their choice rather than having to piggyback on other state or agency procurements. Other public agencies and non-profits can also purchase the ZEUS all-electric shuttles buses through the cooperative. Transit agencies in California are mandated by the Innovative Clean Transportation (ICT) Regulation to transition to all-electric buses.
The ZEUS all-electric shuttle bus is powered by Phoenix’s third generation drivetrain, offering multiple pack sizes and range up to 160 miles. Built with the Starcraft Allstar body, the shuttles offer multiple seating layouts, including ADA options, fulfilling the needs of paratransit, dial-a-ride and first/last mile services.
The Morongo Basin Transit Authority (“MBTA”) and California Association for Coordinated Transportation (“CALACT”) form a purchasing cooperative in the US. Phoenix Motorcars develops, deploys, and services all electric drive systems for Zero Emission Commercial Vehicles. Starcraft Bus is a shuttle bus manufacturer in North America. Creative Bus Sales is bus dealer. Together they build and distribute electric shuttle buses that are Buy America and ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) compliant.
