Electric drive systems for hybrid transit buses

 

The leader in electric propulsion, BAE Systems, has recently announced that the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) has chosen it to deliver over 335 electric drive systems. The systems would be used in its latest convoy of hybrid transit buses which have the capability to reach zero-emissions.

This comes after a request of 165 additional Series-ER systems for Mississauga Transit, providing the Ontario transit organisations with state-of-the-art technology aimed at lowering the usage of fuel and facilitating the transformation of the agency to carry out its operations with no emissions across its fleets.

The focus of the company is on making transportation more sustainable and efficient by providing the sector with advanced solutions to achieve the zero-emissions target. With an experience of 25 years, BAE Systems has a lot of understanding regarding the development of electric propulsion systems and add-ons for transit buses.
