Bus fleets are gradually becoming electric. Now, choices have to be made within transit organizations about what electric buses to buy. And most importantly; are they appropriate for the service you want to provide? Data-driven pilot phases will tell you. By comparing different vehicle types, battery sizes they come with, and charging stations, an ideal combination has to be found that can work best against the best available price. Telematics provider ViriCiti and WSP will share their industry experience with pilot projects and scaling electric fleets and answer the question: what to watch out for when introducing electric buses into your existing fleet?


  • What data is crucial to look at in the pilot phase
  • Roll-out strategies for electric bus projects
  • Charging strategies to minimize infrastructure investments
  • How maintenance work will change for electric buses
  • What electric buses can save you in money and emissions
