Enterprise Services seeks feedback on adding remanufactured, all-electric buses master contract

Thursday, Feb. 16 informational meeting set

The Department of Enterprise Services is considering a statewide master contract for remanufactured buses that were formerly diesel powered and have been converted to all-electric powered drivetrain systems.

Meeting details

Enterprise Services is holding an informational meeting to seek feedback from multiple stakeholders on the possibility of adding remanufactured, all-electric transit buses to a master contract.

he meeting is on Thursday, Feb. 16 from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. in the Presentation Room at 1500 Jefferson St., Olympia.

One prospective vendor, Complete Coach Works (CCW), will be on hand to answer questions about zero emission propulsion system (ZEPS) buses. CCW converts used diesel-powered transit buses into buses with all-electric powered drivetrain systems. The ZEPS powered remanufactured electric bus uses an advanced lithium ion battery system and liquid cooled drive system.

Electric vehicles

Enterprise Services is committed to assisting agencies in reducing their carbon footprint, including with passenger vehicle fleets and other electric vehicle options. Electric vehicles can help save taxpayer dollars due to lower maintenance and operation costs – fueling electric vehicles is like filling up with gas that costs less than a dollar a gallon, and fewer moving parts mean no oil changes, tune ups or transmission repairs.

Where to send feedback or get more information

For more information about remanufactured all-electric buses, or to give feedback on a prospective contract for them, please contact Philip Saunders, (360) 407-7962.
