19-0055 13.1CityBus Fleet ElectrificationCC- Study SessionCITYBUS FLEET ELECTRIFICATION The Transit Division’s largest ongoing capital obligation is the periodic replacement of the 28 fixed-route buses in its active fleet. With the developments in the Zero Emissions Bus (ZEB) industry and the California Air Resources Board’s (CARB) Innovative Clean Transit (ICT) regulation requiring statewide transit bus electrification by 2040, the timing to begin the transition from diesel vehicles to electric buses is optimal. This transition requires collaboration with state and local partners and a comprehensive understanding of the electrification process. This study session will provide an overview of the Transit Division’s fleet electrification activities and allow Council to provide feedback to staff on CityBus’s fleet plan and anticipated electrification timeline in light of fiscal, regulatory, and infrastructure-related factors.   Not available Not available
