AMPLY is collaborating with Con Edison, the electricity provider for the New York City metropolitan area, to establish a new, dedicated line-of-service for the converted battery electric buses (BEBs) stationed at Pioneer’s location in the Bronx, which will also host 5 level-2 (L2) chargers. Con Edison is granting incentives to offset the rates of the new charging infrastructure, which will be designed to avoid disruptive construction at Pioneer Transportation’s lot. AMPLY will provide comprehensive support services, including infrastructure maintenance and management, utility rate negotiation, charging strategy, and financing support. In addition, Pioneer Transportation is working with existing AMPLY Power partner UES (Unique Electric Solutions) to convert the buses from diesel to electric.
Neil Strahl, Pioneer Transportation President and CEO, said: “Pioneer Transportation has always been committed to safe and environmentally sustainable school busing. Our partnership with AMPLY Power is helping to make our transition to electric vehicles more accessible and affordable. We look forward to partnering with Mayor-Elect Eric Adams Administration in our drive to 2035 to make New York City the cleanest, safest mode of transportation for our school children and the city.”
