Agenda

  1. ViriCiti, in collaboration with BAE Systems, has developed an exciting new functionality that enables fleet operators with Series-ER (Electric Range) electric hybrid systems on transit buses to automatically switch the engine on or off in predefined geofenced areas. 

  2. The functionality is compatible with more than 1,000 electric hybrid buses in North America. 

 

Join us on the 26th of June, 2PM East Coast / 11AM West Coast to:

  • Learn how you can apply this for your own fleet
  • Discover how new GPS geofenced areas can be defined and edited in a matter of seconds, without the need of a third party
  • See how it can decrease air& noise pollution, improve fuel mileage, and increase “engine-off” time inside the zone and overall compared to conventional diesel vehicles
