OCTA moved closer to achieving a zero-emission fleet with the purchase of 72 electric vehicle charging stations from ChargePoint, Inc.
The charging stations will be used with OCTA’s fleet of light-duty vehicles that support its bus operations, transit police services and other needs.
Fifty-five of those vehicles are primarily used to transport coach operators on duty in the field. Those vehicles are in the process of being replaced by battery-electric cars, another important step in OCTA’s ongoing effort to convert its fleet to producing zero emissions.
The new charging stations will charge the vehicles daily and will allow staff to monitor and adjust energy usage and view real-time charging status for each vehicle.
