GreenPower Motor Co.Inc. announced that all six of the Company’s EV Star All-Electric Min-eBuses have been delivered to Calif.'s Sacramento Regional Transit District (SacRT). In 2018 SacRT launched SmaRT Ride, an on-demand service in which 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.

In April SacRT ordered three EV Star Transit Plus buses — with wheelchair lifts and other ADA features. This contract also includes three 50kW DC fast-charge stations, to be installed by December 31, 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.

The EV Star Transit Plus is the only bus in its class that comes with a standard J1772 level 2 and CCS DC fast combo-charge system, allowing for optimal flexibility in route planning for any duty cycle, according to th company. The EV Star is eligible for a base voucher of $90,000 from the California HVIP program and an additional voucher of $10,000 when the vehicle is operated in a disadvantaged community.
