City of Santa Monica Battery Electric Bus Deployment

City of Santa Monica Battery Electric Bus Deployment

The Center for Transportation and the Environment (CTE) is working with the City of Santa Monica’s Big Blue Bus (BBB) in California to purchase and deploy one GILLIG battery-electric bus, with plans to purchase and deploy additional BEBs in the future. BBB is requesting an analysis of the one or more BBB routes the GILLIG BEB would serve to develop an understanding of the operational profile and charging requirements for their deployment.

This is a kickoff to BBB’s and the City of Santa Monica’s Vision 2030 plan to become a 100% zero-emission fleet.
