Complete Coach Works (CCW) announced it is starting another project with Calif.’s Gardena Municipal Bus Lines (GTrans).
The project consists of the electrification of four buses of GTrans’ fleet. The buses will be rehabilitated and converted from gasoline hybrid to all-electric battery-powered engines using CCW’s industry-leading Zero Emission Propulsion System (ZEPS) technology.
This contract comes on the heels of a project CCW completed in December 2015 for GTrans, in which one gasoline hybrid bus was converted to ZEPS technology. The current project was awarded to CCW after GTrans received a California Energy Commission grant to upgrade four more of its hybrid buses to electric.
“We’re really excited to get delivery of these four buses and place them into service immediately. The community will instantly get a cleaner, quiet, and environmentally friendlier bus,” said Ernie Crespo, transit director for GTrans.
