Customer Story – School Agency

Logan Bus Company Inc.

As the largest school bus provider for the New York City Department of Education, Logan Bus operates over 2,500 school buses across multiple counties in the greater New York City metropolitan area.

New York State’s Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act mandates the state have a zero-emissions transportation sector by 2040. In an effort to fulfill that mandate, and provide healthier transportation for our children, Logan Bus partnered with AMPLY on a demonstration project. Funded by New York State Energy Research and Development Agency (NYSERDA), the project showcases innovative concepts for EV charging infrastructure and accelerates the use of electric school buses.

Putting Children First

Improving air quality and demonstrating environmental stewardship to children was top of mind for Logan Bus entering this project. Via grant funding from NYSERDA, and vehicle support from UES, Logan Bus was able to convert five Type C diesel school buses to electric. AMPLY Power provides comprehensive charge management for the new EV fleet, allowing Logan Bus to actively monitor all aspects of their vehicles and charging infrastructure through our OMEGA software platform. The new buses will start serving students for the 2021-2022 academic school year.

Navigating Electrification Challenges with AMPLY CaaS

Many school districts and school bus fleet operators face a number of challenges when trying to adopt electric vehicle solutions for their communities, such as infrastructure build-out and navigating utility tariffs for fuel costs. AMPLY Power’s Charging-as-a-Service solution gives Logan Bus predictable energy rates, optimizing charging and prioritizing lowest-cost energy.

Giving Back to the Grid

For Logan Bus, AMPLY will also be demonstrating a vehicle-to-grid solution to increase resiliency and further reduce energy costs at their site. Working with CPower to balance energy demand and supply, AMPLY’s work for Logan Bus ensures they will be able to scale their electrification efforts.

Logan Bus is excited to be the first company in the New York City school bus industry to introduce an all-electric vehicle. Running this project and collecting this data is imperative to showing key stakeholders that electric conversions are economically feasible and currently a more cost-efficient way in reducing our carbon footprint. With AMPLY at the helm, we know we are in good hands.
