Charging solutions for electric school bus fleets

Operate your school buses fleet efficiently and sustainably.

We enable you to protect your children and community by helping you to transition your fleet to electric vehicles.

School buses should be safe for children and the environment. But currently most buses are diesel powered, exposing our children and communities to harmful emissions, and contributing to climate change. Switching to electric buses creates an opportunity to reduce CO2 emissions and save money in fuel and operations costs.

The transition to electric buses calls for more than just replacement of diesel buses. Smart Charging solutions can help reduce investment and operations costs for electric school buses, making electric mobility a viable long-term economical alternative for student transportation.
