School Transportation news
AMPLY Power today announced that Pioneer Transportation Corp., a school bus company that transports over 40,000 students daily in New York City, has signed on as a Charging-as-a-Service (CaaS) customer and will convert five of its existing diesel school buses to battery-operated electric power. Under the 5-year contract, signed in July 2021, AMPLY Power is installing and managing the charging infrastructure as well as overseeing end-to-end support operations for a fixed fee per kWh. The fleet is expected to be fully operational in the first quarter of 2022.
“School bus operators like Pioneer Transportation play a crucial role in New York City’s transportation infrastructure. Decarbonizing these fleets is an important step toward meeting New York’s ambitious carbon emissions reduction targets,” said Vic Shao, AMPLY Power Founder and CEO. “Our service model and price-per-mile-driven billing structure enable simple and affordable electrification of even the largest and most active fleets, like those supporting the daily operations of the New York City school district, the largest school system in the U.S.”
