TransPower’s ElecTruck™ components provide a clean and safe propulsion alternative for a wide range of school bus applications.
A 40-foot Thomas Built Type D school bus was equipped with ElecTruck™ components in 2013 and was approved for student transportation use by the California Highway Patrol in early 2014. This bus was used successfully to transport high school students in the San Diego area during the spring of 2014.
A new project that will result in installation of ElecTruck™ components in six additional Type C school buses was initiated in the summer of 2014. These buses, which will operate on pure battery-electric power and have projected operating ranges of about 80 miles, will be placed into service in California in 2015.
