The Sacramento Regional Transit District (SacRT) has received four of the GreenPower Motor Company Inc.’s EV Star All-Electric Min-eBuses (EV Stars), with the remaining two expected to be delivered in the next two weeks and, separately, that the three additional vehicles ordered in April will be EV Star Transit “Plus” buses — with wheelchair lifts and other ADA features.

The latter contract includes three 50kW DC fast-charge stations, to be installed by December 2019, and represents the first order for EV Star Transit Plus models. The EV Star Transit Plus is wider than the standard EV Star and can accommodate multiple ADA spots with a curbside wheelchair lift.

SacRT provides public transportation for the City of Sacramento and most of Northern Sacramento County. Earlier in 2018 SacRT launched SmaRT Ride, an on-demand service where customers use a smartphone app to request shuttle rides within a designated transit area. SacRT plans to operate its SmaRT Ride shuttle service in 12 Sacramento communities, bringing availability to millions of residents.
