The charging points will be placed along the Red Line transit route, enabling IndyGo’s fleet of 31 electric buses to charge en route.
Momentum Dynamic currently operates wireless inductive chargers in four states. According to the company, the IndyGo system is the highest capacity system of its kind in the world.
IndyGo CEO Mike Terry said, “IndyGo is focused on embracing innovations that improve service reliability, reduce carbon emissions, and increase operational efficiency. The partnership between BYD and Momentum Dynamics to install a wireless inductive charging solution promises to extend the range of BYD buses on the Red Line.”
Momentum Dynamics CEO and founder Andrew Daga said, “We are moving toward an electric transportation future, and Indianapolis is leading the pack both nationally and globally. As public transit agencies transition fleets to electric vehicles, they see substantial economic and environmental benefits with on-route wireless charging technology.”
