HOLBROOK, N.Y. (PRWEB) January 13, 2022
Unique Electric Solutions (UES) announced today that Total Transportation Corp, a provider of transportation services in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, has chosen its uniqueEV® battery electric repower solution to convert six (6) of its existing school buses from diesel to electric. The buses will operate in New York City for the Department of Education (DOE).
Repowering is the process of taking existing, in-service gas or diesel powered vehicles and converting – or retrofitting – to clean battery electric. This provides all the benefits of a new electric bus including zero tailpipe emissions, quiet operation, and dramatic reduction in operating costs, without having to buy new vehicles. Repowering to electric is a faster, cheaper and easier way to go electric with commercial trucks and buses.
Augie Vona, CEO of Total Transportation, said “We are committed to doing our part to improve air quality and provide the cleanest, safest transportation possible. Converting our existing buses to electric via uniqueEV® repower allows us achieve our fleet electrification goals more quickly.” Total Transportation operates in three states, including New York City which recently passed legislation requiring all school buses to be electric by 2035.
Joe Ambrosio, CEO of Unique Electric Solutions commented “Total Transportation is displaying leadership in its move to zero tailpipe emissions vehicles for the benefit of both passengers and the community. They also recognize the benefits of reducing their fuel and maintenance costs for their business with bus repowers, allowing them to reinvest in further electrification efforts.”
The all-electric uniqueEV® repower is designed for school buses from Type A to Type D. Using a high-torque electric motor and modular battery packs, a variety of range requirements can be met at various price points. Both drivers and students are immediately comfortable in the vehicle they already know while enjoying the new clean, quiet ride. The system is available with various HVAC options, and if compatible with all school bus ADA equipment, including wheel chair lifts.
