Long Beach Transit (LBT) will use The Mobility House’s ChargePilot charge management system to manage its latest deployment of electric buses.
New Flyer Group (NFI) will provide 20 battery-electric buses and charging infrastructure, including 10 dual-port Heliox Flex 180 kW DC fast chargers.
Long Beach Transit aims to have a 100% zero-emission fleet by 2030.
According to The Mobility House, the Long Beach project is the 13th major transit bus deployment of ChargePilot in North America, and the company’s fourth collaboration with NFI and Heliox. The three firms also worked together on electrification projects for Knoxville Area Transit, Rochester Public Transit and Antelope Valley Transit. TMH says it has provided its ChargePilot charge management platform to over 1,000 fleets worldwide.
“It is wonderful to be commissioning yet another transit charging depot with New Flyer and Heliox, a proven team that has repeatedly demonstrated the success path to electrification for transit fleets,” said Gregor Hintler, CEO North America for The Mobility House.
“By taking advantage of Heliox’s multiport dynamic charging functionality and managing all their assets with ChargePilot, [Long Beach Transit] will create one of the most efficient e-bus depots in America,” said David Aspinwall, President of Heliox North America.
