SacRT takes first delivery of GreenPower's EV Star for microtransit service

Posted on February 26, 2019

GreenPower Motor Company Inc. announced the first delivery of the all-electric, zero emissions EV Star to Sacramento Regional Transit (SacRT).

The 25-foot, ADA accessible EV Star has an operational range of up to 150 miles on a single charge and will be deployed on the award winning SmaRT microtransit system.

“SacRT is looking forward to placing our six new GreenPower vehicles in our SmaRT Ride, on-demand, microtransit service,” said Alva Carrasco, VP, maintenance, at SacRT. “Once initial testing and training of our operators and maintenance personnel is complete, the vehicles will be placed into service in downtown Sacramento and other regions of our network.”

The EV Star is eligible for a base voucher of $90,000 from the California HVIP program and an additional voucher of $10,000 where the vehicle is operated in a disadvantaged community. The vehicle can be configured with either a Level 2 J-1772 or a CCS DC Fast charge system, which allows for optimal flexibility in route planning for any duty cycle.
